Crowd Conservation has five focal areas in which we provide:
- Facilitation services
- Communication and community engagement
- Peer-to-peer knowledge sharing
- Skills training and workshops
Through personal experience we have seen the need to promote collaboration in order to more fully engage stakeholders. Research and numbers alone will not inspire people to change, and conflict tends to stall progress. Scientists often struggle with promoting the knowledge they have to offer and sharing it in the most impactful method. Crowd Conservation can provide the voice that encourages relationships and trust in order to open doors for collaborative solutions.
Our work at Crowd Conservation provides an open space for diverse interest groups to come to the same table and talk about conservation issues and local values. Through collaboration and conversations we can find common ground and build lasting relationships that lead to transformative solutions. We are able to bridge the gap between researchers and practitioners by packaging the best available science into consumable knowledge. This helps managers and policy makers have the greatest impact with their decisions to protect and restore our communities and wild places.
