A wonderful and inspiring interview@Taranee and@Alain Mukiranya
@Alain Mukiranya : your insights about the language barrier to understanding policies and international treaties resonated with me. Thank you for sharing.
I also wanted to ask you; what is your favourite story you use for raising awareness because of its impact?
@Taranee What was your favourite part of the Conservation Catalyst process?
A big shout out to WildHub coach@Christine Tansey for facilitating this process!
Thanks for sharing this amazing story @Alain Mukiranya It's so exciting to learn how different people connect and interact with nature and how they have evolved to impact the communities around them.
Resonates with the conservation storytelling podcast I've been working on with respect to protected and conserved areas in Africa (listen here)
Thanks for tagging me here @Thirza Loffeld
On a side note, did we meet at the IUCN Africa Protected Areas Congress last year @Alain Mukiranya ?
Thanks so much Ussi for this interview. We ought to share more stories on the pertinent issues we face today- climate change and biodiversity loss; and how these are affecting our daily livelihoods.
Thanks so much for this awesome piece @Marrian Tendai Rwizi and @Brian Heppenstall, so insightful!
Indeed, drawing from personal experiences in the sector, I can attest to that. Equity also still remains a huge barrier to fostering wildlife conservation especially in developing countries across Africa. Consequently, we still see business oriented conservation. A moment to revisit our wildlife conservation policies to ensure equity and accessibility- a value I strongly stand for and always want to contribute to!
This is a really awesome piece, thanks for sharing. It relates so much with the field experiences I've had with communities around protected areas in Uganda, Karamoja to be specific. It also speaks to my new project coming up next month to via NatureWILD Hub (stay tuned).
I will as well be at the IUCN Africa Protected Area Congress this July and will be running a series of podcasts in the move towards the Congress. Would be great to have some of these perspectives incorporated too.
Hi Nafeesa! Thanks for sharing. I’ve been involved in related programs (but not necessarily full curricular). I also do know some folks who’ve been doing same or something similar.
Happy to contribute.
