For over 15 years, the Kinship Conservation Fellows program has been helping conservationists advance their use of market-based tools. Each year, the program hosts 18 Fellows for a month-long, in-residence program in Bellingham, Washington. Using real world examples, Fellows design and evaluate market-based approaches to conservation challenges, and depart with solutions that they can apply to their own work.
