Capturing and sharing knowledge can be a highly leveraged conservation strategy, ensuring that the broader conservation community benefits from your experience. All too often, we omit this very important step. When we do so, we lose important opportunities for leverage and advancement, we risk making others reinvent what we have already invented, and all too often we repeat failures. By taking the time to reflect on what you have learned, and then sharing it appropriately, you can have an impact far beyond your own strategy’s physical or thematic boundaries.
