Conservation through Reconciliation GRAPHIC - The Restore Assert Defend (RAD) Network emerged from the Conservation through Reconciliation Partnership to enable #conservation#finance pathways rooted in #Indigenous rights, responsibilities and knowledge systems.
The RAD Network is hosting monthly Full Moon Network Gatherings to deepen relationships, learn from one another, and envision pathways forward.
Join us on February 6 from 2:00 - 4:00 EST for a RAD conversation on Indigenous-led conservation finance!
In this gathering, we will discuss how conservation finance pathways can:
- Uphold Indigenous rights, sovereignty and Nationhood;
- Safeguard Indigenous culture and knowledge and the health of all people;
- Advance protection of biodiversity; and
- Create climate solutions.

Plastics produced from plants are often considered less environmentally damaging than plastics made from petrochemicals. But scientists are warning that we should be careful making such assumptions.
A new literature review found that bio-based plastics can be just as toxic as their conventional cousins. Furthermore, many plastics marked as biodegradable failed to break down in coastal environments.
