Importantly, initiatives like SNAPP provide the repeated interaction that collaborations of the willing need to coax each individual out of their comfort zone to listen and learn from each other.
It is highly unlikely that the results these two collaborations generated could have been achieved by a solitary genius toiling alone in a garret.
I agree with my rugby coach that collaboration is a good thing.
But only when it is founded on a critical ingredient: a coalition of the willing.

Environmental Problem Solving
One of the greatest threats to wildlife in Africa derives from so many people lacking alternatives for food outside of hunting and eating wild animals.Some of the major problems related to climate change, broken ecosystems, species extinction due to sudden climate change and Sea level rise, which is very dangerous.These kinds of problems are some of the most recent and problematic due to global warming.One is the rise in sea level as a result of the increase in the volume of water in the world's oceans caused by the melting of ice sheets and glaciers on the ground.You are trying to minimize it, but the problem is too big, so you still need time to be completely reconditioned.Collaboration can be stunningly successful when the parts seek out one another and self-assemble to solve a shared problem.Even when a group forms from dissimilar organizations with, at times, contrary agendas and ways of working, the willingness of group members to collaborate often helps to bridge these differences.There are models, however, that show how funding that enables collaborations of eager collaborators can produce remarkable outcomes.One such example is the working-group model pioneered by the National Center for Ecological Analysis and Synthesis (NCEAS) and which undergirds the Science for Nature and People Partnership (SNAPP), itself a collaborative initiative between NCEAS, Wildlife Conservation Society and The Nature Conservancy.Because we live on Earth, global environmental problems and challenges are something that needs to be resolved.There are several ways to solve a global environmental problem. This means that we must change our lifestyle and start thinking more about our environment in a different way, for example: reducing the plastic of a single use, making purchases in bulk, implement the in our home, etc.
