Compassionate conservation is the most significant shift in the paradigm of conservation in a century. As such, it needs researchers and practitioners conversant with both traditional and innovative perspectives to help guide its development. 

PAN Works has a host of leading scholars in compassionate conservation from the natural and social sciences, as well as ethics and public policy. This provides the Initiative a unique interdisciplinary vantage point to reframe the values, theory and practice of conservation.
