This individual will have knowledge both about appropriate conservation practices specific to your project subject. Your
Advisor will assist you with the following items:

Technical: Conservation Advisors are experts in different fields of conservation. They know how to devise a technically accurate project that will benefit conservation efforts, while also being doable for the Scout. Technical designs like architectural plans, structure sketches, or species management plans need to be reviewed by the advisor in order to ensure that the work completed will maximize the benefit of the project.

Project Options: The Scout is responsible for finding a project to complete. As such, he must actively seek out organizations to work with that have adequate conservation projects to complete. However, a Conservation Advisor will know about general project categories and potential organizations to perform projects with. Often, the Conservation Advisor will work for a company or government service that can serve as a benefiting organization for a Hornaday project.

Approval Role: The Conservation Advisor serves as an approved liaison to the Council Conservation Committee throughout a Scout’s planning and completion phases of a Hornaday project. There are three milestones that are important for Hornaday projects. First, the Advisor must approve the project plan that contains information detailed in the following pages. The Advisor should review all documentation associated with the project plan, as well as major decisions that occur when executing the project. Major changes that occur to the project plan should also be reviewed. Finally, the Conservation Advisor is the pre-approval person for the final Hornaday application. 

Resources and Contacts: A chief role of the Conservation Advisor is to provide the Scout with Hornaday related resources, professional organizations, conservation guidelines, and general advice that will help throughout the project.
