Recent studies in Asia and Australia found that community-managed areas can sometimes do better than traditional parks at preserving habitat and biodiversity. When it comes to conservation, maybe local people are not the problem, but the solution.
Mary May's insight:
This article deals with the need to incorporate indigenous people into the management and health of parklands. This concept is based on research done where they have found the ecological health of populations actually improved with proper managment, in comparison to parklands that had no human involvement.
In Nepal, Tiger populations were healthier in areas where locals had input into the management of the parkland. The concept of corridor communities where the parklands where tigers existed were separated from humans with properly maintained corridor communities.
Another example is in Western Australia where the Aboriginal people left for many years and certain populations of lizards and other wildlife died out in those areas. When the Aboriginal people returned and resumed their practice of setting controlled burns to hunt lizards, this brought up the population of lizards over time.
The term Jukurr, refers to how the Aboriginal people “Know” the land and animals deeply, personally.
Indigenous Community Conservation Area Consortium is a group designed to address such parkland issues throughout the world.
