Cut the dead wood
When a project comes to an end or reaches a significant milestone (for example the end of a funding term), it always feels like an uncertain time but, it consecutively opens up the opportunity to refresh, reinvigorate and renew. To do this effectively, the project team need to be able to reflect honestly and openly about their progress to date. From my experience though, this can be hard to do. In a project where you've invested so much, it can be difficult to be objective, to take a step back and see the bigger picture. But, this process of review is essential in order to ensure continued progress, and to be sustainable in the long run.
Long-term sustainability is critical to ensuring nature conservation continues at any site, but it can be elusive. To achieve this you need buy-in from people as well as resources. But this takes time and until you reach the point where the work is looking after itself, you need the support of good donors, a great team and strong leadership.
