ABSTRACT
As society itself changes, the work and role of professionals who carry out endangered species conservation are changing. Knowing about the range of standpoints a professional can assume in conservation is one way to enhance effectiveness. Professionals may assume a variety of standpoints, depending on how they see the recovery process and their own role in it. Recovery may be viewed as a biological-technical task or a multifaceted task with biological-technical and social dimensions. An endangered species case illustrates how one professional chagned her standpoint from a "conventional" one to "policy oriented" professionalism. These two forms of professionalism are compared.
