“Dimidium facti qui coepit habet: sapere aude!”
(He who has begun is half done: dare to know!)
~Horace, Epistularum liber primus, 20 BC
According to the Latin poet, Horace, the courageous one forges the river in pursuit of knowledge and wisdom; whereas, the fool waits for the river to pass before venturing forward. Sapere aude, “dare to know” or “dare to be wise,” was the mantra for the Age of Enlightenment. Our desire to know and understand the world drives us to learn, explore, and create. We embrace the spirit of Sapere aude, redefining the role of an environmental consultancy that inspires us to design better ways to serve our clients and improve the science and practice of conservation.
Our logo was based on the ethnic West African Wisdom Knot (Nyansapo), which symbolizes wisdom, patience, intelligence, and ingenuity. The Akan of Ghana use this Adinkra symbol to imply broad knowledge, learning, and experience, and the ability to apply such faculties to practical ends.
“When the wise (person) ties a knot, it takes intelligent mind to untie it.”
~Kwadwo A. Okrah, Nyansapo (The Wisdom Knot): Toward an African Philosophy of Education, 2003
