ST. JOHNS, Newfoundland –-(Ammoland.com)- Internationally recognized conservationist, wildlife biologist, speaker, and author, Shane Mahoney, has recently launched Building a Coalition Between Hunters & Non-Hunters, the fourth video to be released as part of his new Conservation Matters vignette series.
Building a Coalition Between Hunters & Non-Hunters is available to view on Facebook, or via Conservation Visions’ YouTube Channel: http://bit.ly/2cx0Rpf.
In this short film, Mahoney discusses breaking down the barriers that prevent or hinder the formation of broad and diverse coalitions in the modern conservation movement.
In just under nine minutes, he provides historic examples of cooperation from our shared past, while warning against present day division among the individuals and organizations that work on wildlife’s behalf.
Inspired by Mahoney’s desire to share information about wildlife, nature, and the many scientific issues and challenges impacting global conservation in the 21st Century, the Conservation Matters video series features original content, as well as a selection of Mahoney’s most popular articles, penned for outdoor periodicals such as Sports Afield and Outdoor Life.
“Conservation is everyone’s responsibility and must be everyone’s concern,” stated Mahoney. “My hope is that Building a Coalition will encourage individual engagement in wildlife conservation issues, and motivate people to find common ground for discussions. Regardless of differing opinions, motivations, or preferences, we all share common problems and we will all need to work together to find the best solutions for conservation.”
