Community-based conservation efforts involve engaging local communities in the conservation and management of their natural resources. Such efforts empower local people to become stewards of their environment and contribute to the sustainable use and preservation of natural resources. Community-based conservation efforts can range from small-scale projects to large-scale initiatives and involve a range of activities, such as habitat restoration, marine protected area creation, and eco-tourism development. Such efforts have shown to be effective in conserving biodiversity and preserving cultural heritage, while providing social and economic benefits to local communities. They can also foster local ownership and promote a sense of responsibility towards environmental sustainability.
