Contribution to this site began with a few students.  They were participating in entrepreneurial conservation projects and wanted to document their experiences and observations. The objective for this documentation was simple: to get fellow students interested in participating in these initiatives.  Like Tom Sawyer’s approach to getting the fence painted, without the cheekiness but with every intent to enlarge the work party.

As per the law of unintended consequences, in addition to students a wide variety of others have followed the example of the early contributors.  First, a group of older social entrepreneurs responded to the request of the students and started sharing their experiences.  Then a teenaged photographer of Indian dragon flies shared his craft, as did a 20-something photographer of the Patagonian Expedition Race, a 50-something princely photographer of birds, and so on.

We have welcomed naturalist guides, semi-permanent travelers, vagabond volunteers and others to contribute when they have something to say that helps us illustrate entrepreneurial conservation–why it is needed, how it is done, what goes wrong, what goes right…

In addition to the contributors themselves, thanks to two places where contributors have been hosted: Morgan’s Rock in Nicaragua and Cardamom County in Kerala, India.

    I love your references to Mark Twain and Nicaragua. Twain has always been my literary hero. If I’m not mistaken, he once traveled to India via Nicaragua. The Panama Canal hadn’t been built at the time. Congratulations on the good work that Raxa Collective is doing. Your youthful idealism is contagious and necessary for a better (sustainable) tomorrow. Best wishes.

      Thanks again–and speaking of youthful idealism, just in case you haven’t read Twain’s “Innocents Abroad” you’re in for a real treat.
