Applications are now open for the 2009 Kinship Conservation Fellows program
Kinship is a paid, month-long leadership training program designed to equip select career conservationists
with effective tools for solving environmental problems through market-based principles.
Kinship offers a rare opportunity for conservation professionals to explore new ideas and renew their inspiration for their work while learning from and collaborating with a truly exceptional group of Fellows and faculty. As one of the 2007 Fellows put it,
"I spend my life (luckily!) working in teams of committed, enthusiastic, intelligent, sympathetic, fun and creative people. It's normal for me. I'm used to it. But this group was something incredible."

in Bellingham, Washington. Kinship will be accepting applications for the 2009 cohort through January 31, 2009. Eighteen Fellows will be selected to participate. Applications
