Dear ASC media listees

People lie at the heart of conservation and conservation science. Sure 
it’s about planning national parks, protecting endangered species and 
slowing declines in biodiversity; but people drive all these activities. 
And it’s people’s values that usually determine whether a conservation 
action ultimately succeeds or fails. And this issue of Decision Point is 
all about how you put people into the conservation picture.

Check it out for yourself at http://www.decision-point.com.au/
