For over 30 years, Community Conservation has helped produce important research that communities, scientists, and other conservation stakeholders can use to benefit their community-focused projects.
Recently, we’ve been adding some resources for the general public who want to learn more about involving local people in conservation.
We hope you can utilize some of the lessons we’ve learned!

These resources are mostly studies and book chapters of interest to conservation practitioners such as community members, scientists, and students in conservation-related fields.
