I first knew I was a conservationist when:
I realize that conservation is about people and their interaction with the nature. This is where education, which interests me greatly, plays a critical role. Investments in people's learning to influence their knowledge accumulation, change of attitudes and behavior can yield rewarding gains in conservation efforts. I truly believe in conservation for the people by the people through education and continuous lifelong learning.
