Foundations of Success

To combat the cynicism in my last article I’m pointing you in the direction of these guys.

Foundations of Success is a non-profit organization committed to working with practitioners to learn how to do conservation better through the process of adaptive management.

Vision – An engaged conservation community working in a collaborative, transparent, and respectful manner, with the knowledge that the approaches and interventions it is using are likely to achieve measurable long-term success.

Mission – To improve the practice of conservation through adaptive management by working with practitioners to test assumptions, adapt, and learn.

Core Values –

Commitment as a way to stay focused on goals
Teamwork because we can achieve more working together than we can on our own
Objectivity to enhance our science and our relations with our partners
Transparency to promote open and honest sharing of information and experience
Empowerment of individuals to take responsibility and be accountable for results
Respect that makes it possible to challenge each other without threatening our relationships
Fun that comes from our interactions with our partners and our satisfaction in our work
Quality in all that we do
