The challenge of coordinating conservation for Asia’s Critically Endangered Vultures. Lessons and application for other conservation examples

Presented by Outlining how science has led to a solution for the catastrophic declines, but also how that alone is not enough to reverse the situation. Showing how a coordinating approach has been carried out, and where that has been more and less successful. Then asking attendees to consider parallels or differences with other key threatened species or conservation issues. What will the student get out of the workshop?Understanding of the need for good science underpinning actions, the need to prioritise actions using such scuience, and to regularly update and review, and the need to maintain communications and relations between disparate groups which may share similar goals, but without this contact the impact and direction can get lost. Main aims and goal:Stimulate thinking for species conservation planning and how to approach building partnerships to address the agreed priority actions needed. Target audience:Conservation practitioners of the future. Workshop organisers:Chris Bowden
