This is wonderful! I took the course a few years ago, and I found it enlightening, interactive, and engaging! In line with my recent comment on why we need to foster language justice and understand human behaviors, I definitely recommend adding this knowledge shared by @Brooke Tully to our conservation practice. Get enrolled asap!

Hi Thirza and community, 

Happy to join this conversation. I've been working in the conservation sector for 7 years, and this year, I am coordinating a program around local organizations doing restoration. I found myself a bit challenged to bring together the best of the 2 sets of approaches, from conservation to restoration. I wonder if anyone would interested in chatting about this or developing a session! Maybe we are doing the same, or applying the wrong approach. Who knows. Happy to touch base on this. Ana Yi
