Island Conservation prevents extinctions by working where the concentration of both biodiversity and species extinction is greatest: islands. By removing one of the greatest threats—invasive alien vertebrates—native island species and ecosystems often can recover with little or no additional intervention. Removing the dominant threat to biodiversity, in the places where the greatest lasting results can be obtained, ensures conservation success across the globe.
This year the 2012 impossible2Possible (i2P) Youth Expedition will be to the incredible continent of Africa!!! i2P will lead 8 Youth Ambassadors on the journey of their lives as they run across some of the most beautiful regions of Botswana. The Youth Ambassadors will relay information back through live video conferencing to thousands of students in classrooms all over the world as they study water, share the experience of ultra running day after day, and learn what it takes to execute an international expedition. This year i2P had partnered with Simon Fraser University to offer an enhanced educational curriculum to classrooms that wish to learn about water issues along with the Youth Ambassadors. The Experiential Learning Program and accompanying Challenge Based learning projects have proven to be extremely successful for teachers and students alike. Enjoy! You can follow the journey along at http://impossible2possible.com
We are entomologists who teach about the amazing diversity of arthropods. We produce free online videos and podcasts that make learning fun for a broad audience and promote public access to science. To inspire a lifelong love of learning, we teach insect biodiversity and conservation workshops at libraries, schools, and community centers. We are research scientists who have provided outreach teaching in areas of East Africa, Central America and the U.S. We are consultants for the Norman Borlaug Institute of International Agriculture where we travel to Guatemala to teach farmers how to reduce their reliance on pesticides and conserve beneficial insects.
