Pre-Deployment Trainings

WCS staff have directly trained more than 20,000 military personnel at Fort Drum, West Point, the Sustaining Military Readiness Conference and reached additional personnel via personal trainings and the distribution of materials to all military bases in the United States as well as through US Army Africa, AFRICOM, CENTCOM, SOUTHCOM, PACCOM, and SOCOM.

WCS has produced and distributed many training materials to U.S. military personnel in pre-deployment as well as in-theater trainings. Products include an award winning video, Caught in the Crosshairs, narrated by Edward Norton, Smart Cards and training fact sheet for deployments to Afghanistan and Africa, Form 4856 with information on wildlife trade, mobile display materials, several narrated power point presentations, training folders for distribution of materials, and the mobile app – Wildlife Alert – to identify species from products.
