Collaborative Conservation for Collective Impact


The issues we face in conservation and natural resource management are complex and cut across jurisdictions, disciplines, organizations, and boundaries. Collaborating with others can be challenging, especially when our neighbors have different interests and needs or there is a history of conflict. However, when we work to find common ground and focus on relationships, collaboration can generate creative and durable solutions to some of our most difficult conservation problems.

In this podcast, we dive into key aspects of collaborative conservation, a term often used to describe work with private landowners, state agencies, non-governmental organizations, and others to achieve collective impacts. We hear from Heidi Keuler, Fish Habitat Biologist and Fishers and Farmers Partnership Coordinator, and Todd Sutphin from the Iowa Soybean Association about their experiences with the collaborative process.
