Summary: Many wildlife professionals conduct field work on public or private land. Knowing how and when to engage with private landowners, lease holders, and other stakeholders is important for research success. Building relationships with other land users facilitates the collection of robust scientific data, as well as increasing local support for research projects.
This workshop was facilitated by Sarah Elmeligi, Andrea Morehouse, and Courtney Hughes who come to their work with communities from various perspectives. The workshop was split into three sections: 1) preparing to engage with your community and project planning, 2) implementing your project, and 3) wrapping up and reporting back to your community. Sarah, Andrea, and Courtney covered the details of identifying who to talk to and when, how to reach out, and the social science techniques and methods that can be applied for success. They also discussed lessons learned from their own experience and best practices, as well as various communication and planning tools to keep your community engaged and to build trust and positive relationships.
A recording of the workshop is available in our members area, so don’t worry if you missed it.
