This issue of Lessons in Conservation is dedicated to the memory of the inspiring and sorely missed Dr. Eleanor J. Sterling. In this issue’s opening editorial, a small group of Eleanor’s colleagues reflect on her visionary educational approaches and consider the needs and opportunities for the field of conservation education to continue to improve. Under the umbrella of a Monitoring and Modeling theme, this issue features five student-facing educational resources that support learners to contribute to the scientific process, collect data, and analyze and model existing datasets in the same ways that some communities and scientists do as part of conservation research. 

Lessons in Conservation is the official journal of the Network of Conservation Educators and Practitioners (NCEP) and is currently available in electronic format. All materials in Lessons in Conservation are peer-reviewed and are reproduced from NCEP teaching modules. If you plan to use these materials in your teaching, you may wish to download easily modifiable Word versions of the materials found in Lessons in Conservation, along with additional teaching and learning modules, from the NCEP module collection.
