Higher Calling Wildlife® is proud to announce the winner of the high school division of the Tony Houseman Conservation Legacy Award is Marina Wilson of Brazoswood High School.

She was recently presented the award by Higher Calling Wildlife founder Chester Moore and his wife Lisa.

“Tony Houseman was a president of the Houston Safari Club Foundation and was an early mentor of mine-the earliest in fact. He saw something in me when I had no real media resume to speak of and helped fuel the early part of my career, “Moore said.

Wilson is a high school senior with a dream to work on behalf of fisheries conservation as a marine biologist.

“I met her at the 2024 Houston Fishing Show and saw something in here. As I contacted her mother and learned more about her, she was an obvious choice for this award. This year we divided it into two categories-pre and post high school graduate,” Moore said.

“When I saw as a high school student she was already doing intern work at Sea Center Texas in Lake Jackson and working with southern flounder alongside their biologists, it was obvious she was more than deserving.”

Wilson is already giving back to the resource and will take part in Higher Calling Wildlife’s “Summer of the Shark” project to help shark-loving kids facing special challenges learn more about sharks. The project is sponsored by CCA-Texas.

“I’m excited to be helping out with what Higher Calling Wildlife are doing and I am looking forward to learning everything I can about coastal fisheries and look forward to pursuing a career in that field.”
