With all of the amazing submissions this year, we want to recognize the Chilean National Forest Corporation (CONAF) for their submissions, as both of their entries tied for third place!
This entry highlights the Chilean Wine Palm titled: Think to learn, learn to know, know to adapt, adapt to win.
This case study showed the importance of this unique and important endemic palm species, and garnered a lot of enthusiasm in our crowd- source voting. CONAF showed their accomplishments of the project and use of the Conservation Standards, but was also the only group that emphasized their challenges and failures along the way, as well as the opportunities that arose from them. Great job CONAF!
