Meet Our Team

Believing whole-heartedly in their work, Carol Frampton and Shelby DeVuyst are two of conservation's most prominent advocates. As avid outdoorswomen, Frampton and DeVuyst cherish the wildlife around them and Americans' rights to hunt and fish. Striving to learn and share their knowledge continuously, and with the help of the Association of Fish and Wildlife Agencies, NRA's Hunters' Leadership Forum, and others, these women seek to educate the United States on Conservation laws and policies, including the threats to current conservation efforts.

 

Between the two are decades of boots on the groundwork in conservation, wildlife management, and time in the woods and on the water. Frampton and DeVuyst are hunters, anglers, and educators ready to create an informed conservation profession with the Center for Conservation Excellence's courses, seminars, and career guidance in conservation law.
