You may or may not have heard of the term ‘umbrella species’ before?
A couple of definitions include:
“A wide-ranging species whose requirements include those of many other species”
“The protection of umbrella species automatically extends protection to other species”
But you probably haven’t heard of ‘Umbrella Conservation’.
I define it as:
“The conservation of species and their habitats which automatically extends conspicuous and superfluous benefits to every stakeholder involved”
Say goodbye to:
Unsupportive Cultural Traditions
Poor Local Capacity Building
Poor Project Funding
Don’t make me give you an example of how this could work…
