What Effective Methods for Biological Diversity Conservation can U.S. NGOs Demonstrate?

I will examine how U.S. NGOs are promoting biodiversity conservation in cooperation with other sectors through trial and error by participating in activities of an NGO, which has the largest number of conservation sites. As a journalist, I am in a most appropriate position to make the two governments understand their important roles and to encourage them to take the initiatives.
