Hello amigos, 

Welcome to the final week of this Strategy Development for Wildlife Conservation online training workshop. We’ve really enjoyed getting to know you all and hope you have enjoyed the training.

THIS WEEK'S MATERIALS

There is just one video this week, here, which is split into 3 parts: 

Applying your skills
Mock exam
Revision.

The video explains more about the mock exam, so it is a good idea to watch that first.

Here is the link to the mock exam.

This document has extra revision ideas in. One of the revision ideas involves working in pairs or groups, so if this is something you would like to do I'd suggest putting a shout out on here. If it suits your revision style you could also arrange to chat with others just to chat over the materials or ask each other questions.

KAHOOTS

All the Kahoots are available to play here

EXAM

The exam will be on the 30th of November at either 10 am or 6 pm GMT. To accommodate those who can't make those dates we will put on an extra session at 6 pm GMT on the 1st of December. Unfortunately only in extenuating circumstances can we put on extra exam sessions as they require a lot of our time to run. 

If you have any questions or concerns then please get in touch.   

With wild wishes,

Beth and Lucy 🕊️

WildLearning Specialist, WildTeam

I'm a WildLearning Specialist with WildTeam, a bit of a odd job title. My main role is to design, deliver and organise both our online and class-based training workshops. One of the best parts of my job is meeting other conservationists and learning about the work that they do. I really enjoy geeking out reading teaching theory and thinking about ways I can more creatively and engagingly deliver learning. Before working for WildTeam I did a PhD in invasive plants and human wildlife interactions. I find it really interesting to learn about the ways people interact with nature, both when nature is being wonderful, but also when is is being a bit annoying!

I cannot create my own post - hope it is okay to add my thoughts here? 

I looked at just a few pages of the Sun Bear Conservation Action Plan (starts on p. 39).

https://portals.iucn.org/library/sites/library/files/documents/2019-041-En.pdf 

Straight away, you will notice the variety of regional and international stakeholders involved in creating this long-term plan. Major threats and then clear goals/objectives have been set. Actions have been prioritized, responsibility assigned and some indicators stated. 

One thing I noticed, however, was that many of the objectives and indicators are not so specific (few are quantifiable) and rather seem more like 'results.' 

It is still a really impressive action document and done over only a TWO DAY period...wow!
