Understanding China’s Conservation Landscape

When I first arrived in Sichuan and made contact with TNC China, I was invited to give a talk about my experiences with management and education in the U.S. National Park system. With relevant volunteer, outdoor recreation, and academic experience, I was able to delve into the aspects of management and education that have made the U.S. National Park System successful to date. At the time, I admittedly wasn’t so familiar with Chinese methods of conservation, or the advantages and obstacles of managing nature reserves in China.
