Nature interpretation can be an effective way to communicate about and involve people in biodiversity conservation. Interpretation activities may comprise presentations or walks led by an interpreter, as well as exhibitions and print or audiovisual materials that people can use independently. This module describes the history, guiding principles, underlying philosophy, and methods of nature interpretation. Interpreters can be found in a wide range of settings beyond nature guiding and work for a variety of organizations. The module provides examples of themes—and guidance for developing them—and describes major categories of interpretive programs – presentations, exhibits, and community outreach – outlining the process for planning, implementing, and evaluating.
