To protect endangered wildlife, we need to find ways to turn local communities into allies, rather than alienating them. Here’s how it can work.
To save endangered species, we need to work with the people who live alongside them. From over 20 years of experience in engaging with local communities, our team has developed a set of principles for successful partnerships.
Herders, farmers and wildlife rangers living in Asia’s mountainous snow leopard habitat are our most important partners in the fight against poaching and killing of these endangered cats.
The Snow Leopard Trust’s new book, ‘The PARTNERS Principles for Community-Based Conservation’, authored by Charudutt Mishra, is launched by President Atambayev of the Kyrgyz Republic. It’s a handbook for successfully engaging local communities in wildlife conservation.
