Based on your work at UWEC, what has been your most important learning moment so far?
My best learning moments are those when Conservation Educators are sharing some special and unique information about an animal specie or plant. I love listening to stories of how nature relates to man
You are welcome to wildhub. I love the part you said you that you love to explore new interesting places if there's something for you to learn.
I love you to explore our conservation catalyst program and I hope it will be of interest to you. We will also need your story telling skills to help us translate our research work too. Communication is a big factor in conservation projects and your skill will be highly appreciated here.
Thank you Cecilia I am ready to learn and willing to share
Hi Diana! Welcome to the Wildhub community. In your role as a Conservation Educator, you use various communication methods like photography, videos, recorded audios, and written stories to convey conservation messages. How do you assess or determine the effectiveness of these different communication approaches in engaging your audience and achieving your conservation education goals? Are there specific metrics or feedback mechanisms you use to measure the impact of your efforts?
Thank you Crissy for connecting, As a Centre we use the produced content in our different Conservation Education programs that run on the CONNECT, UNDERSTAND and ACT ideology. We develop on site conservation signage, about the different animal species and flora , we do outreach programs where we showcase what we do, using a rig van that projects videos, we engage the clients on social media - and here feedback is instant.
We do visitor surveys using a digital google from to find out how effective is our communication and the general of a visitor at the Centre
