Education for Conservation brings together the perspectives of 37 researchers and practitioners from different national and international organisations.  Aimed at professionals and students working in the field of educational research, in particular environmental education, this work brings together aspects of history, the theory of knowledge, of communication and environmental education with experiences and concrete actions for biodiversity conservation.  Section one defines and discusses concepts such as biodiversity, conservation, restoration and social participation, while section two and three focus on formal and informal case studies with initiatives orientated towards the development of flexible and participative methodologies in education.  The end result being people directly involved in environmental education activities.
