Review for Izilwane--Voices for Biodiversity, El Prado, NM, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I first came on board at Izilwane because of their unique perspective on conservation: instead of focusing JUST on the hard science, they attempt also to examine and evaluate humans' connections to the environment and what makes us want to protect it. They use a fascinating, multi-media platform in order to engage the general public and encourage them to participate in their discussions of conservation and our role in conservation actions. Izilwane is made up of passionate, creative individuals who each bring to the organization their unique perspectives on culture and the natural world, and I'm glad to see their reach growing far and wide! What a great group!

Review for Izilwane--Voices for Biodiversity, El Prado, NM, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

This small, brand-new online magazine approaches conservation from a completely different standpoint: rather than focusing on the science, per say (though there is plenty of it!), the writers focus on the human experience with conservation and the natural world. Instead of talking about the science of trees, they look at why human beings love trees and the culture surrounding hiking, picnics, climbing trees and other outdoor activities. Instead of talking about how the wolves fit into a great ecosystem, they talk about the cultural connections people have with wolves and the role wolves can play in the culture of tourism. It's a brilliant and new way to look at the roles we, as humans, play in conservation.
