The best of intentions can sometimes have some unintended consequences. In this seminar, we explore some of the thing we, as natural resource managers, are doing now that we may end up regretting in the future.
What are likely to become our biggest mistakes? How do we prevent them? How do we avoid repeating mistakes of the past? What is it we should be doing?
