Exploring the Power and Pitfalls of Storytelling for Conservation
A conversation with Dr. Nalini Nadkarni and Stephen Trimble.
Scientists often communicate through lists of goals and outputs, devoid of any emotional attachment. We’ve been taught to eliminate sentiment from scientific narrative, to deliver only data and outcomes.
Storytelling can emotionally engage non-scientists unfamiliar with theoretical concepts in ways that facts and figures cannot. Telling compelling stories that bring data to life transforms research into a journey of discovery that promotes deeper understanding.
