Dr. Allendorf is also participating in a panel discussion for World Rainforest Day on Monday June 21st from 11am-1:30pm central.

How do organizations partner with local and Indigenous communities, what do those partnerships yield, and how can they be strengthened?

Three high-impact organizations – whose shared approach to conservation is rooted in collaboration with local communities – are coming together to share their experiences and best practices with you. In a blend of conversation and Q&A, panelists from Community Conservation Inc., Forest Trends, and EcoLogic Development Fund will take a deep dive into the field of community-based conservation, unpacking what a partnership with a local or Indigenous group looks like and how to effectively collaborate to ensure maximal impact and a mutually beneficial relationship.
