The Friends of the Dragon Run hosted conservation professionals from seven countries on June 30 during the College of William and Mary’s Institute for Integrative Conservation “Conservation Catalyst” program.
The program brings eligible conservation professionals from around the world to William and Mary for a three-week intensive summer in residence. Broadly, the curriculum focuses on developing leadership competency, through skill-building and growing and strengthening participants’ networks. Sessions focus on conflict resolution, storytelling, communication, funding, self and organizational wellness, and community engagement.
The Catalyst cohort included representatives from Amboseli Ecosystem Trust in Kenya, Botswana Wild Bird Trust, Conservation International locations in Cambodia and Singapore, Eastern Cape Parks and Tourism Agency of South Africa, Living Desert Museum of California, USA, Mbhashe Municipality of South Africa, and the Mongolian Conservation Initiative.
