The Wildlife Conservation Society’s approach is field-based. However, there are some challenges and themes that interrelate with conservation that need to be approached at a larger level than the landscape level. These cross-cutting issues include: Amazon waters, which hopes to highlight the hydrologic connection across the Amazon basin; environmental governance and infrastructure, which strengthens sustainable development; protected areas management, which supports an effective use of protected areas at a systems-level in Peru; and wildlife health and policy, which works to assure the sanitary conditions of the wildlife we work with. Acknowledging these at a larger scale allows us to work for a grander, more effective impact.
