Provide Practical Tools and Training

Partner organizations can play a critical role in conservation by providing local communities, organizations, and government agencies with tools and training that catalyze change at the local level. Local groups often value assistance in areas that help them design sound conservation programs (e.g., strategic and site planning), implement monitoring and enforcement plans (e.g., fish abundance and water quality surveys), strengthen their foundation (e.g., organizational effectiveness), and enhance their ability to convene and collaborate (e.g., facilitation).

We tend to invest a lot in science, a lot in policy. But at the end of the day, building the skills of local leaders—in the community, the government, and local organizations—is what makes conservation happen. You can have all the money in the world, all the science, but if you don’t have local people who can actually do the work and help preserve their own resources, conservation won’t be successful.
