Basten Gokkon wrote a great article on Mongabay News that was an interview with one of the plenary speakers at the International Marine Conservation Congress (IMCC5) in Kuching, Malaysia. the presenter is named John Aini, who founded the Ailan Awareness in Papua New Guinea. 

The subject of the plenary and interview that John gave was about decolonizing conservation, which means conservation needs to work towards conserving the marine environment that line up with the needs of the local or indigenous community. 

Here is a link to the article/interview: https://news.mongabay.com/2018/07/decolonizing-conservation-qa-with-png-marine-activist-john-aini/

In this episode, I reiterate the need for conservation to address the local community rather than the agenda of International NGOs.
