Collaborate and help others

A space to share opportunities for collaboration, partnerships and general requests for help (see also our Q&A section in the left-hand menu). 


DISABILITY, CONSERVATION & TOURISM The challenge is that people with physical disability, especially from Africa, can’t afford the cost of a visit to a national park. Some of them live close to protected areas their entire lives without ever seeing wildlife in its natural habitat. They hear wildlife stories that are more fiction than fact tainting their views of the natural world.  Special Safari’s Africa:  Our goal to  involve people with disabilities in tourism activities by offering free safari tours - Serengeti National Park and organizing tricycle tour ride challenges inside the protected areas escorted by rangers working at the Kijereshi Game Reserve. Together working in team work and collaboration we can promote tourism activities to people with disability across Africa and beyond.

Citrus greening aka. Huanglongbing

Hello all, I'm currently writing an assignment on citrus greening, and I was wondering if anyone has had first-hand experience with it. The assignment focuses more on the potential gene-editing might have as a solution to citrus greening, and what sustainability pros and cons arise from it.  If anyone has had any first-hand experience with citrus greening or has an opinion of gene-editing as a solution for combating citrus greening, feel free to comment or message me. Any help or advice would be appreciated. Lucy

New protected area (in Belize!) in need of guiding plans for management

Hello WildHub Hive,  I'm hoping this is the right place to ask my questions (if not, please let me know!)  I'm working with a newly established conservation NGO in Belize that has been entrusted to co-manage a protected area with the Government of Belize. The protected area is new to this NGO and has been lacking active management for many years.  The NGO is eager to develop the following guiding documents: 1) Surveillance and enforcement plan 2) Data collection protocol 3) Community Outreach plan I've searched google high and low for general outlines or templates for these plans and didn't have much luck. I know alot of the information within these documents is context-specific to the country/region, but I'm hoping some of you might have an idea as to what a basic template would be for these.  I'm also wondering if the NGO would hire a consultant to develop and finalize these documents, how would the NGO gauge how much to budget for consultant fees. How do you figure this out?  I would be so grateful for any/all comments or advice - please feel free to respond here or to my email -  All the best, Megan

Cash for Conservation

Do cash transfers lead to conservation outcomes? Cool Earth would love to hear you opinion in a research study titled Cash Transfers in Conservation: An exploration of the views of conservation professionals. This survey is aimed at any conservation professional, regardless of specific previous experience with cash transfer or cash giving programmes. It will take you approximately 20 minutes to complete.  What do you think? Please let us know here.

Online survey: Mindfulness as a Conservation Leadership Tool

People working in the conservation sector face multiple complex and relentless challenges every day that are very often outside our control. To be successful in our work, we need to be able to manage demanding workloads with few resources,  deal with constant change, react swiftly and surely at times of crisis, truly understand others and their needs, find creative and transformative solutions, build meaningful relationships and exert positive influence at all levels of society, retain hope and positivity in the face of the significant environmental challenges we face; recognise personal vulnerability and maintain a high level of personal resilience. As a means to better meet these challenges, Fauna & Flora International (FFI) started working on a pilot project to embed mindfulness within the working culture of the organisation. I am undertaking an academic placement as part of the MPhil in Conservation Leadership to generate information that will be complementary to this project. The aim of this placement is to understand the extent to which mindfulness could help to improve conservation leadership and the working culture across the Cambridge Conservation Initiative partners. If you work in conservation and practice mindfulness, I would appreciate it if you could contribute to this project by answering this brief online survey: If you have any questions, please send an email to the following address:

About this room

In this room, we dedicate space to requests for help (e.g. surveys, expert knowledge) and to share opportunities to collaborate. 


*) Be specific which help you require exactly. Add for example which questions you need answered, for surveys: specify closing dates and your target audience (who should complete it?). 

*) Be brief and to the point: add contact information if you like people to get in touch with you directly, but be mindful that this is a public forum and your contact details will be visible online, also to non-member audiences. 

*) Stay focused on a single topic per request or opportunity to increase clarity
