“Hope” is the thing with feathers— That perches in the soul—
Emily Dickinson 1
The science of the previous few chapters may make it seem that reconciliation ecology is inevitable. The examples of the first seven chapters may make it seem that reconciliation ecology has arrived. You may now believe that all a concerned citizen needs to do is applaud and participate. Not quite.
Reconciliation ecology lacks recognition and organization. We must discover how to integrate it with other conservation efforts. And it needs far more support. One person, most certainly including yours truly, cannot alone supply the necessary support.
Similarly, one book alone cannot supply all the answers. But it can raise some questions. That is this chapter's job. We start with the organizational issue, advance to integration, and finish with some support problems that actually turn out to be secret weapons for accomplishing reconciliation.
Don't we need a federal agency to supervise reconciliation ecology? And don't they need to cooperate with a U.N. agency of some sort? Not at all.
