Online Training across Latin America


In late 2010, FOS partnered with the US Fish and Wildlife Service Wildlife without Borders Program to provide distance training in the Open Standards for the Practice of Conservation to teams across Latin America. The course received an overwhelming amount of interest, with 120 applicants from for only nine spaces. Teams used real-world projects to develop draft strategic plans to more systematically guide their conservation strategies. Projects focused on a diversity of conservation issues, including manatee conservation in Costa Rica, sustainable management of non-timber forest products in an extractive reserve in Brazil, development of biological corridors in a fragmented highland landscape in Colombia, and migratory grassland bird conservation in the Southern Cone.
