Abstract or Summary
  • Honko Mangrove Conservation and Education is a Western non-governmental organization based in Madagascar that serves as a source of public science education and caters to diverse audiences. My thesis examines barriers of culture, language and epistemology that may constrain Honko’s ability to conduct effective public education, if they decide to expand their organization. Honko should implement a three-pronged action plan that includes a dynamic epistemological model drawing from Western and Traditional Knowledge Systems and an strategy to actively identify changing audience and stakeholder bases. These two steps plus a shift towards constructivist educational philosophy that encourages reflection and incorporates social-context into science could help Honko attain their educational goals and overcome cultural barriers to ecological and public education.
