The field of conservation education has experienced significant paradigm shifts since its said-to-be inception in the 1960's. While many advances have been made in the field of conservation education, many challenges and varying viewpoints remain. This is especially true as many conservation related issues are underpinned by political, economic and cultural opinions and allegiances. Using the literature and projects underway at the San Diego Zoo Institute for Conservation Research and beyond, we will discuss these changes and challenges, while exploring what the future of conservation education may have in store.
