Summary:

Solving complex conservation challenges at scale requires building and sustaining relationships over long periods of time. Strategies to evaluate the impact of large-scale conservation interventions across space and time, while critical, are nascent and fragmented. This research reports on a three-year research project with a large-scale collaborative conservation effort in the Northwest Boreal region of Alaska, British Columbia, and the Yukon Territory. Social network analysis is used to track changes in the network topology and the results of this research point toward a multi-dimensional set of social network analysis metrics for evaluating collaborative conservation.
