Rapid Learning

Griffin Groups ( is a free-to-use online tool for connecting conservation knowledge and projects in a network of conservation communities.

  • Using a single log in, members can join or start one or more groups to organize information and communications about conservation topics.
  • Groups can be customized in many ways.
  • Group members can interact by email, archive their discussions within a group, and access a suite of collaboration tools. 
  • Content can be explored and searched within groups and across the site.
  • Members have very specific controls over how they receive notifications about new content and comments in their groups.

Griffin Groups revolves around the site member, their professional contacts, and the various groups that they start or join. Each member has a public profile and private dashboard that they can customize. While members can add content directly to their profile, most of the content on Griffin Groups is organized and accessible through groups. Members can create as many public and private groups as they like as long as they are compatible with the Terms of Use, including copyright laws. Every piece of content on the site also has visibility and editing permissions set by the person who first saved the content (see Privacy).

Connecting Conservation designed Griffin Groups to:

  • Short answer: Help people work together better, and use resources more strategically.
  • Long answer: Address the need for integrated knowledge transfer across disciplines, organizations, tools, and geographies in order to assist the transformation of natural resource conservation as a practice from independent to coordinated activities that address strategic public-private partnership goals.
