Stakeholders are exploring the interest and need for a Conservation Action Plan for Upper Frenchman Bay. Conservation Action Planning (CAP) is an integrated process developed by the Nature Conservancy for planning, implementing, and measuring conservation success for its conservation projects. The CAP process has been tested with a wide range of projects from different parts of the world and is supported by a network of trained CAP professionals that make up the Conservation Coaches Network for Conservation Action Planning.
The CAP process guides project teams to identify effective conservation strategies. It provides an objective, consistent and transparent accounting of conservation actions and the intended and actual outcomes of conservation projects. It enables project staff to responsively adapt their actions to improve strategy effectiveness and achieve greater conservation impact.
