Episode 073 - 5 Steps to Get Things Done (GTD) & 3 Bonus Apps
01:01:10

Today’s episode is all about Getting Things Done.

I am excited to share this methodology with you and a few apps that will help your productivity success in an stress-free way!

Before I started to use GTD my to-do list consists of one-word items like a grocery store list, dog food, post office, call mom, post its, etc, with no defined meaning.

If you take anything away from today, this is the most important thing… yes I am giving it to you right now…

Your goal starting today is to use the five steps I’ll talk about to manage actions not time.

I am excited to share with you how to do this.

Episode 070 - Dr. Kristen Weiss and Buttercup the Oceanpup share how project commitment leads to impact
01:10:10

Dr. Kristin Weiss and Buttercup the Oceanpup. Dr. Kristen Weiss is currently Communications Coordinator for the Long Term Ecological Research network.

Previously, she was an early career fellow in Science Communication at the Center for Ocean Solutions, Stanford University, and before that a lecturer in the Environmental Studies Program at the University of Southern California where she taught courses focused on ecology, sustainability, and natural resource management.

Kristen received her PhD from James Cook University in Queensland, Australia, where she studied marine governance using policy network analysis. Her goal is to continue communicating about significant environmental issues and contribute to better conservation and management strategies to protect our threatened ecosystems.

In her free time she enjoys adventures with her tiny dog Buttercup–on her stand-up paddle board, at the beach, or in the forest. And taking naps.

Kristen and I met at a 2 week fellowship sponsored by the Center for Ocean solutions six years ago, she had just recently adopted Buttercup a tiny yellow chihuahua that steals your heart away.

When I first met the duo, it was like they had been together forever, the little dog looked like she woke up in Kristens arms… I am excited to dive into the platforms Kristen created with Buttercup to get her dog involved for creating a better world, and much more!

Episode 068 - Kathi George leads whale entanglement solutions and volunteers in California
39:23

Kathi George is the Global Response Project Manager for the Marine Mammal Center located in Sausalito, CA. She has over 15 years of experience with marine mammal entanglements, specializing in entangled whale response. She’s been on several large whale entanglement cases and trained many volunteers on how disentangle a whale. Kathi and I have been friends for several years now. We met when she first started the California Whale Rescue a non-profit dedicated to serving the community of volunteers who help to untangle entangled whales. Through working together, we came up with a budget and scope to help volunteers, through my efforts during my Sea Grant Fellowship I was able to secure their first major funds that would get the nonprofit off the ground. Since then with Kathi’s leadership she has partnered with one of the biggest marine mammal rescues in California and is leading other amazing projects related to her new role, which I can’t wait to learn more about in this discussion today.

Episode 063 - Celina Chien begins her conservation career using photography to share biology stories
52:07

Conservationist and Photographer, Celina Chien, is giving a voice to wildlife in the age of the Anthropocene.

"I stumbled across a few other photographers and I realized that I've never even considered it before as a medium of \ communicating conservation and communicating science but I found that it was the perfect bridge between conservation and scientists and the academic world and the public because, you know, we hear all these statistics and we hear about all these horrible facts, you know, the sixth mass extinction and you know it makes us feel helpless. And also it's just so big and abstract and having photos that can be shown, emotional connection between people and environmental issues. I think it can really start a discussion and spark action." Celina shares in her interview about finding photography and using it for science.

In this episode she shares how a new conservation starts out in the field and why she connected with wildlife.

Episode 062 - Communicate Like A Conservation Project Manager
39:20

One of the most powerful skills to master as a conservation project manager is communication, put simply know when it is time to talk, and not talk just for the sake of talking. We’ve all been to one of these meetings where someone just keeps talking about something that was covered already. Wishing the project manager would redirect the conversation back to the agenda. Or wishing the project manager would just end the meeting so the team can get back to work. Perhaps you are a conservation project manager or want to be one, today I share tips on how you can boost your communication skills so you can be wiser, listen to understand, and respect the time of your team members. Keep your meetings short, concrete, and frequent. Remember to include everyone, complement each other, don’t compete for attention. Because… as George Bernard Shaw states “The single biggest problem in communication is the illusion that it has taken place.”

Episode 058- Katie Schuler creates films on pangolins - the most trafficked mammal in the world
47:04

Katie Schuler is a new friend I met at Jackson Wild and the International League of Conservation Photographers Wild Speak West in September 2019. I was completely surprised and inspired by Katie’s commitment to work on the world’s most trafficked mammal. She is an advocate for the planet’s most at-risk species, Katie operates at the nexus between science, empathy, and storytelling. More than a decade of filmmaking across six continents has afforded Katie expertise in the field and in the editing room. Using her signature storytelling flair, Katie’s films explore how we live alongside nature, garnering accolades, accruing millions of views, and inspiring meaningful conservation victories. Her production company, Coral & Oak Studios, has partnered with many of the most recognizable names in wildlife filmmaking, including National Geographic, Smithsonian, BBC, HBO, and PBS. Katie’s film, Pangolin, is the winner of six best short awards including Jackson Wild’s 2017 Best Short category. Since its premiere, Pangolin has been translated into four languages, reaching over 75 million people while serving as an important tool for conservation. Two of her latest films, Where Life Begins, and Nigerians Fight to Protect the World’s Most Trafficked Mammal, have won awards at festivals in 2019. Katie is a National Geographic Explorer, a graduate of the Corcoran College of Art and Design, a Henry Luce Fellow, and a member of the International League of a Conservation Photographer’s Emerging League. She currently operates out of Washington, D.C. alongside her husband, Nick, and dog, Bullseye. And now little Schuler!

Episode 054 - Dr. Shermin de Silva protects wild asian elephants in Sri Lanka
54:55

Dr. Shermin de Silva - we met at her fundraiser she hosted for trunks and leaves, an organization she founded to raise awareness for asian elephants. I was fascinated with her work with a subset of asian elephants and the communities that surround their habitat. She is a behavioral ecologist with research interests range from animal behavior and communication to population biology. She investigates how landcover changes might affect elephant populations and is interested in understanding how research translates into international wildlife conservation policy as well as public understanding and engagement with conservation in Asia.

Episode 053 - How and why to hire a project manager
24:21

Are you excited to start a new decade and new year? 2020 is going to be amazing for so many reasons. To start of the new year and Season 2 I wanted to share a little bit about conservation project management, what is this nondescript role, why do you need a conservation project manager, and how do you find one for your project.

A lot of people have asked me these questions over the past year - so I thought I would start the year answering the questions and generating an online conversation about ways people in the conservation industry implement project management into their projects.

What works and what does not! So head over to the Projects For Wildlife Facebook page to start the conversation! Before we launch into this episode today did you know we are ringing in the new year with our new partnership?

Episode 051 - Rachel Henry saves the California Tiger Salamanders through collaborations with landowners
43:52

Rachel Henry she is a U.S. fish and wildlife biologist. One of her primary roles is working with private landowners to achieve California tiger salamander recovery in Santa Barbara County. The Santa Barbara County distinct population segment of the California tiger salamander is a federally endangered species. Rachel is working to prevent the loss and destruction of habitat that represents the primary threat to the salamanders. At the crux of her work is a balance between species conservation and ensuring landowners can utilize their lands. I am excited to dive in and learn how she has grappled with landowners to care about these tiny little salamanders that live much of their lives beneath the surface and the different programs she uses to further conservation of this species.

Episode 044 - Stephanie Arne shares how South African penguins are using man-made nests to increase their population
01:01:15

In this episode Stephanie Arne shares how manmade penguin nests are helping South African Penguins stay cool in the hot sun and protect their eggs and young from predators. Guano on the island where they nest was mined by man. This left the penguins without any place to hide from the sun. Even more importantly there is no shelter to protect the eggs. With extreme temperatures the penguins sit on their eggs and stay with chicks to protect them. A group of scientists created mock nests and found one that works perfectly. For $50 you can donate to this effort to build a penguin nest. Penguin populations are extremely low and with these nests there is an opportunity to bring back the penguins to South Africa.

Episode 043 - Creating 2020 Wildlife Conservation Project Goals
31:31

Goal setting sounds horrifying to some and fun to others. As a project manager, or if you strive to be one, you know that goals help you stay focused and move in the direction you want to go. Setting goals is taking control of your life - kinda. I say kinda because we know all things change and that we actually don’t have exact control of the outcome. The goal setting process starts with careful consideration of what you really want to achieve and ends with hard work to achieve it. This is why many people have trouble succeeding. In this episode I help make it simple and hopefully you will be motivated to start working on your 2020 goals!

Episode 042 - 10 tips to strategically engage stakeholders
15:47

One of my favorite topics in project management is stakeholder engagement. I love working with different stakeholders and finding ways to work together. There are 10 steps to engaging stakeholders effectively and a few checklist items that will help you streamline your engagement strategies. A stakeholder in a wildlife conservation project can be practical or financial supporter. They can be advocates or researchers, a large nonprofit, farmers or a cooperative of farmers, hunting organizations, government agencies, sanctuary or wildlife refuges leadership teams, or general community members. These are the people you will work with to get buy-in for your project or the project you are managing. ​ Stakeholder engagement is important because the engaging part of the process helps translate stakeholder needs into conservation project goals. This process of translating needs to goals creates the foundation of effective strategy development. Taking the time to discover the point of consensus or shared motivation in the engagement process helps the group of stakeholders arrive at a decision and ensures that all are invested in a meaningful outcome.

Episode 039 - Case Study - Phase 5 Closure - Elephants and Bees
20:18

This is the fifth and final episode in a project management series I set up to help leaders like you with the terminology and applications of project management for conservation research and projects. Project management is a lot like the scientific process is similar to… instead of having a hypothesis to test you have a set of objectives to accomplish. The best part of project management is that there is an end to the project. It’s the defining feature of a project - All projects have a final due date. If you are one of those people who love accomplishing something then project management might be for you because as you know finishing something feels really good! You can find the project management series by going to episodes 023, 029, 036, and 038 on the projects for wildlife.com website. I created this series because to address a fundamental flaw of conservation research and something that holds us back from accomplishing what we are trying to achieve and this is it.. … it’s that recommendations from conservationist research get stuck in papers and never find their way out of a paper and actually implemented. As you may already know, many times these research papers are full of amazing mitigation recommendations that were proposed and agreed upon by all the stakeholders... and then nothing happens after the paper is published. There are lots of reasons why, and really this area is not well studied… although it happens ALL the time. It’s my belief that we can use project management techniques and tools to take those recommendations out of the paper and implement them in a way that will benefit humans and wildlife. Instead of creating the dream… let’s make the dream reality and we can do it with project management. This series focused on human-wildlife conflict, coexistence, and projects that have taken different mitigations and applied them for the benefit of both humans and wildlife. From lions, to wolves, bears, and now elephants you have seen how a large variety of people from government to academia and from rancher to advocate there are a lot of people involved in finding solutions. It’s my hope that over the course of the last four episodes that the use of project management tools and strategies can easily be used take recommendations in a paper and apply them and grow ideas and collaborations. This is my favorite phase of project management, the closure. All projects should end with a celebration!

Episode 038 - Case Study - Phase 4 Monitor and Control - Grizzly Bear Project
33:21

This episode is dedicated to the implementation phase of the project management lifecycle. There are four phases to the lifecycle, initiation, planning, implementing, and closure. In the implementation phase it can be broken down into two sections 1. Execution. 2. Monitoring. For this episode I am going to focus on Monitoring - where in episode 036 I focused on execution. This is the fourth episode in a project management series I set up to help leaders like you with the terminology and applications of project management for conservation research and projects. Project management is a lot like the scientific process is similar to… instead of having a hypothesis to test you have a set of objective to accomplish. To me the best part of project management is that there is an end to the project. I don’t know about you, but for me the accomplishment of finishing something feels really good! You can find the first three episodes in this series by going to the projects for wildlife.com website and looking for episode 023, 029, 036. Let’s start exploring the ideas to reduce human/wildlife conflict in populations that are severely threatened by using the mitigations recommendation provided by these studies. I want to demonstrate with project management tools and strategies we can easily take recommendations in a paper and start to apply them. With that being said let’s get started on the Monitoring phase!

Episode 036 - Case Study: Project Lifecycle Phase 3 - Project Execution - A Wolf Project
36:31

“Project management”, then, is the application of knowledge, skills, tools, and techniques to project activities to meet the project requirements. It has always been practiced informally, but began to emerge as a distinct profession in the mid-20th century. Project management processes fall into five groups and in this episode we focus on Phase 3 Execution! Also, I have a thing for wolves and coexisting with them this year. Since they are under threat for being removed from the ESA and have not recovered to their original population numbers I feel that we need to keep talking about wolves. They are the closest mammal to our beloved dogs. They have family units that resemble human families. They deserve to live in the wild and we are responsible for maintaining habitat for them. I find that recommendations from conservation research gets stuck in the virtual universe and never finds their way out into the space for people to implement. Through the Project Management Case Study Series I want to use project management techniques and tools to take those recommendations to the next level and create the changes we’ve already suggested. Let’s start exploring the ideas to reduce human/wildlife conflict in populations that are severely threatened by using the mitigations recommendation provided by these studies. I want to demonstrate with project management tools and strategies we can easily take recommendations in a paper and start to apply them. The execution phase is exciting because you get to finally do all the things you planned to do in the planning phase.

Episode 035 - Dr. Manuel Varela talks about ecological benefits and impacts to microbes and their relationship to wildlife
01:16:50

Dr. Manuel Varela is a microbiology professor at Eastern New Mexico University located in the small ranch town of Portales, NM. He is the co-author of two books “The inventions and discoveries of the World Most famous scientists and “enter the world of microbiology: interviews of the world's most famous microbiologists.While in graduate school he coined the term “Antiporter Motif” and went on to study microbial physiology at Harvard. After Harvard, he returned to New Mexico where he started his own lab at ENMU. He teaches Microbiology, Microbial Physiology, Immunology, Medical Microbiology, and Virology. Wow… As I say this I realize that these are all courses that I registered for and passed in undergrad! It makes me a bit nervous still to think about those exams! And that was a huge accomplishment because Dr. V is a tough but wonderfully engaging professor. (take a deep breath) He also mentors graduate students and works collaboratively around the world on topics such as bacterial sugar transporters, drug resistance, and discovered multi-drug efflux pumps. In this episode we are going to talk about connection of bacteria and the environment. Dr. Varela’s research is showing that food-borne pathogens are becoming antibiotic resistant. These enter our environment through food animals - in waste streams and production. Polluting our water and land. The reduction of antibiotics as a growth mechanism in food animals is now being banned globally - yet there is a concern about resistance and a looming food shortage in the near future. Let’s have a look at the importance of bacteria - especially for creating a healthy environment that we promote survival of biodiversity. One more plug before we get started. I know that you may have a special professor or mentor in your life that really saw potential in you - even if you had no idea you had ounce of potential. Dr. V is that professor for me. We’ve known each other since 1997 when I took my first Microbiology course with him. Over the years he has provided references that supported me acceptance into graduate programs and fellowships - literally he has supported me as I follow my dreams. He has given me amazing advice to help others in education and on my own research pursuits and publication. I am so grateful to Dr. V! If you have a professor or mentor that has changed your life send a Thank You note today!

Episode 034 - Case Study: Key Factors that Drive Human-Wildlife Conflict
43:47

One of the reasons I launched the Projects for Wildlife podcast was specifically to discuss human-wildlife conflict, what it is, why it exists, and how we can coexist with wildlife. And most importantly how do we set up projects that will create benefits for humans and wildlife. With climate change, loss of habitat, the expanding human population there will be more biodiversity conflicts and challenges - this means more human-wildlife conflict. This prediction has been shared among the scientific community world wide - and it is up to us to decide how to use the best available science to reduce conflict and develop strategies to achieve conservation goals and sustainable living among human populations. There is both a wildlife conservation view point and a human sustainability issue that is at the core of most human-wildlife conflict. If we are to protect wildlife we have to address the human issues. In most countries the first wildlife management strategy used by the government is to kill an animal or population. Even in first world countries like the U.S. - the Wildlife Services Department kills wildlife instead of find non-lethal solutions. In the U.S. there is a change in beliefs on how wildlife are managed. With questions like “how should managers handle human-wildlife conflict, endangered species restoration, and predator control?” In this episode I talk about two different studies about attitudes of conservation and key factors that drive human-wildlife conflict.

Episode 021 - 4 Steps to focus and achieve on your goals
29:38

This episode is dedicated to focusing on your goals - that’s right staying in your lane and doing what’s brining the most joy into your life. Last year I wanted to launch a podcast - yet every time I thought about one I did not know what to cover in an episode - it stopped me in my tracks.

For the past four years most people that come to me for advice typically want to know how to launch a project, keep their project on track, how to design a schedule, budget, a project plan.

Literally all the “simple” things I’ve learned as a project manager over the last 19 years. Yet these things are not simple in some cases - so it’s with this that I launched Projects For Wildlife Podcast.

I think it’s important to continue to learn from leaders who are in the field protecting wildlife and saving their habitats - by replicating success we gain more traction and with that we can do more and become more confident that we are making progress towards our goals. Yet the one thing we have to do is stay focused. So that is why I this episode is super important to your wildlife project. It’s all about staying focused. Here are the four steps for creating goals that you can stay focused on over the next 30 days. Step 1: Write down your goals (all of them) every single thing you’d love to achieve in 30 days. Step 2: Narrow down to your top three goals. Yes only three! Step 3 - WHY DO YOU WANT TO ACHIEVE THESE GOALS. Step 4 - Are there any show stoppers? If so how will you overcome them.

Episode 019 - The 3 Stages of Conservation Burnout & How to prevent it from happening to you
20:21

One of my guests after the recording stopped had mentioned how heavy and hard this work can be. In fact over the past 19 years since my bachelor’s degree I’ve heard professors, managers, research colleagues, and friends talk about burnout in one aspect or another. And even if they did not exactly say exactly the word burnout I believe that is what they were all describing. A general description of the health of a person, where emotional, mental, or physical overload take place is what I am considering conservation burnout. Burnout as it relates to people working in conservation is the result of an imbalance of time allowed for relaxation, emotional and mental recovery which is needed to keep going. I think this topic is incredibly important to talk about in the conservation space. With the heaviness of extinction and climate change looming, and highly dedicated people committing their entire life to protect wildlife and our resources there is no wonder that the exhaustion will kick in at some point. The manifestation of burnout can be prevented if you take proper steps to prevent it. I am going to talk about burnout in three stages and a few ways to prevent it and/or overcome Burnout if it happens to you.

Episode 018 Suzanne Asha Stone stops the persecution of wolves with non-lethal management tools
55:06

Suzanne Asha Stone is a leader who protect wolves, and other wild dogs around the world. Working with ranchers she has seen non-lethal management of wolves work - this means that we do not have to kill predators that share ranch land with humans. She has seen ranchers as part of the solution to wolf conservation. In the U.S. wolves are considered being removed from the Endangered Species List. If this happens wolves will be decimated from our country. Wolves have not fully recovered as a species and are not seen in most of their original ranges. You can sign the Defenders of Wildlife petition to save wolves at bitly.com/protectwolves. Listen to more tips on how to implement coexistence methods into your wildlife project.

Episode 016 - 4 STEPS to Overcome Imposter Syndrome
17:12

In this episode I talk about overcoming imposter syndrome - PLUS I've included a FREE hypnotherapy recording to accompany this episode.

The four steps that can help you overcome the imposter syndrome are:

Step 1. There's no such thing as overnight success Step 2. Fear can motivate

Step 3. Don't compare yourself to others

Step 4. The definition of SUCCESS is subjective

In the first part of the episode we take a deep dive into what the definition of Imposter Syndrome is, by using what the science that is already out there about the syndrome.

Did you know imposter syndrome impacts women and men - at all levels of their careers, and in equal numbers? No matter if you are researcher, entrepreneur, executive director, CEO, CFO, or general manager you can have symptoms associated to the imposter syndrome. In fact the more you achieve in life the more you might come across the feelings of all you achieved being a result of luck or being in the right place, perhaps you doubt your abilities and ideas, you lack self-confidence, dwell on past mistakes, and overall you just don't feel good enough. You may not feel this all the time - and that is what research shows - that the imposter syndrome is a reaction to a specific set of circumstances or situations. The most limiting part of dealing with the imposter syndrome is that it limits your courage to chase your dreams and stops you from achieving more success. And if we want to protect wildlife and save the last remaining wild spaces we have to overcome the imposter syndrome and explore those new ideas and call-in the life we desire. Use these four steps to put yourself out there in a more meaningful way. And listen to the FREE hypnotherapy recording everyday for the next 21-days. I'd love to know what transformations take place in your life. It's time to be Brave Enough! Let's get over our fear of failure so we can live boldly and free - and ensure a beautiful future for the wildlife we all love.

Episode 014 - 3 STEPS TO BRING IN ABUNDANCE FOR YOUR LIFE AND PROJECT
35:03

The excitement about doing something good in the world is the same passion that keeps conservationist going. We all feel the drive to join and lately we are seeing it in the news media as children actively step into their rights as heirs to our planet.

Each year the number of concerned people grows larger!

With all this positivity you might be thinking - why should I talk about mindset? And why is it important to shift our mindset? And if we do - what good will come of it?

In this episode I share why our undercurrent, looping negative mindset around lack is bringing more lack into our world. When we flip the script to abundance we will bring more resources, money, success to our conservation projects.

If you want to protect wildlife you must demonstrate to others that they too can save wildlife. This means no project belongs to one organization, one researcher, one lab. In fact when one project rises up the ladder of success - with it creates opportunities for others to do so because you have proven that you are abundant opening the path way where there is plenty for you, your organization, your wildlife species, your team, therefore plenty for others.

The Know, Like, Trust factor in online communities is really important. You adore your research and create amazing content for your community. You know the material and how to create messages that people want to read. But perhaps all this work really isn’t gaining the traction your desire in growing your online communities or your newsletter list.

Once you’ve established this they will follow you and support you and your mission. No matter what platform you decide to use and grow your community there are a few steps to gaining momentum.

In person salespeople do this daily, but online it’s hard to get it right. And you’re not the only one struggling with getting readers to respond, comment, share, and follow you. You may be sending out the right information and invitations, but let’s dig into some ideas on how to transform your community. I am going to share a few ideas. Here are the three concepts upfront.

Get Known online. Build Likeablity online. Build Trust online.
