Wildlife conservations starts and ends with people.
Whether it be human wildlife conflict, habitat destruction, climate change, poaching or trafficking, it is usually a manmade problem and up to the people to fix it. People such as the Bayaka of the Central African Rainforest have lived since time and memorial in a symbiotic relationship with their natural environment and their neighbours.In such situations, solutions to saving a particular species or ecosystems are more likely to be found with those communities still living in harmonious relationship with their surroundings then in any academic, corporate, governmental or non-governmental organisation.
However such communities are mostly experiencing the same destructive pressures as the environments they are depending on. We need to learn from them as well as help them!
Please donate if you can to be able to help these communities protect their wildlife and ecosystems!
