Hey folx and welcome to a special series of Dugongs and Seadragons. We are between season 1 and two right now and during this time The dugongs and seadragons crew had an opportunity to do a workshop on how to use table top roleplaying games like Dungeons and Dragons to help engage people in conservation.
The workshop was done virtually at the Student Conference on Conservation Science – New York, through the Center for Biodiversity and Conservation at the American Museum of Natural History. The workshop was 2 and a half hours long, but we have edited it into three 25-40 minute episodes to be release over the course of November.
We really hope you enjoy learning about how the crew here at Dugongs and Seadragons have managed to come up with a way to use our passion for D&D into a way to share our passion for the ocean and conservation.
For those of you just joining us on D&SD, we want to thank you for taking the time to listen to the important research we have been doing to see if we are really having an impact on marine science and conservation education. For are already devoted listeners, please note that the editing of this workshop was limited to removing the Um’s and Uh’s so you are going to get to see a glimpse into all the random shenanigans we chatter about during an episode, and if you want to listen to more of these randomness, you can sign up for our patreon, where we keep a library of all the unedited episodes. This month’s adventure is also a cannon to the Dugong and Seadragons’ world, and takes place between season 1 and season 2.
