Our Conservation Work, including three new modules that merge the process of conservation planning and measures.
The self-paced course provides students with the opportunity to explore, at their own pace, the process of considering the audience and conservation context for monitoring programs, as well as reviewing the fundamentals of articulating program logic and experimental design for cost effective data collection, which we collectively refer to as “measures.”
