Collaboration. It’s neither the sexiest term, nor the sexiest process. It is sometimes frustrating, often complicated, and always arduous. So why collaborate? Consensus collaboration provides a unique venue for making conservation gains, especially when land management is governed by weak laws (e.g., grazing management) or when large-scale restoration is needed.
The Trust has a long history of leading as well as participating in collaborations. By seeking consensus, developing solutions out on the ground, and building strong and professional relationships with seeming adversaries, we make big conservation gains across the plateau.
