How you can help

Being a leader

We are all leaders in the conservation movement, each in our own way.   That’s why organizing for change is so important.  It helps us work together towards common goals, and to support each other.

Being a conservation leader is easier than you think.  You don’t have to stand on a street corner with a sign (although every little bit of promotion helps).  Just make conserving a natural part of your life: at home, at work, and in your community.

The easy way to think of it is “me, you, and we”: a commitment to conservation in who we are, what we do, and how we help others.

The neat thing is, this approach is the same, whether in our own lives, for businesses, or for governments.  It is just a simple way to remember that conservation is not a single act, or a single issue, it is a way to approach everything we do.
