Resilience, Issue 40 – Beyond Resilience
In 2007, the Board of the Quivira Coalition added the words “build resilience” to our mission statement. Resilience means “to bounce back” or “recover quickly” from a shock or surprise. In ecology, it refers to the capacity of plant and animal populations to handle disruption caused by fire, flood, drought, or insect infestation. In ranching, it means enduring droughts, low cattle prices, and other stresses over the years. Today, while building resilience is more important than ever, it may not be enough. That’s because the definition of “normal” is changing. In this issue of our journal, we tackle the idea of going beyond resilience for ranchers, landowners, wildlife and young people.
