Latest On The Conservation Gateway

A well-managed and operational Conservation Gateway is in our future! Marketing, Conservation, and Science have partnered on a plan to rebuild the Gateway into the organization’s enterprise content management system (AEM), with a planned launch of a minimal viable product in late 2024.

Originally published in the Science Chronicles, the “Coda Files” highlight the experiences and lessons learned from Coda Global Fellows assigned to improve The Nature Conservancy’s ability to assess our conservation impact in our global priorities. The summary is below and you can download the full profile here.
Coda Fellow: Leandro Baumgarten
Day Job: Science Manger, Atlantic Forest and Central Savannahs, Brazil
Assignment: Eastern U.S. Division Science
Duration: July – December 2011
Task: Share vegetation restoration and monitoring techniques and gain science department management skills.
Most Important Lesson Learned: "Many scientists across TNC think they will be working out on preserves, but many of us need to manage and collaborate with many people and we weren’t trained to do this; it has to be learned.”
