    The Conservation Crisis will not be healed through more Conflict and Court Cases. True healing and enlightened Conservation efforts can only come through deep Understanding and Appreciation. This is why a lot of the work WNPS does at our core, focuses on Advocacy through good Outreach. Enabling wider groups, and specialized smaller communities to be better informed, is the starting point for the long journey ahead.
