In the wildlife world, today, what is keeping away between that from illegal activities and preservation of natural sources is the willing of the native population who’s living on these lands fair and far away from us. As many journals around there and conservationists in the fields, indigenous people seem and are a crucial part of the mitigations for global sustainability and climate terms. They directly fighting for their homes and cultures with illegal practices and there is no one better than them who know that world where they living.
The Real Defenders Of the Wildlife
As some article around the web stating, a more than a quarter Earth’s surface is managed from indigenous communities who represent roughly the 5% of the global population. These lands around the globe are rich in precious natural resources such as gold, silver, wood, coal or oil. Most of the times these land are under-attack from illegal activities such as mining or drilling. Indigenous people as guards of their own land, play an important role on this mechanism of illegality. Sometime they are in struggle because not supported from any other organizations but some other times they are well organized and achieving their right of ownership.
The legislation regarding the land ownership to the indigenous people by many governments is often and many times not considerate with too much attention. Or maybe is better say that governments play, most of the time, the multinational or corporation’s game. In the deepest and darkest way, someone in the government is behind these illegal activities, as well if the mainstream media do not talk about it. As a result, indigenous people remain on their own for fighting a war that they not even ask. Conservationists, today, they changing their strategies of approaching in the field and playing more a role of intermediation than defenders between native communities, governments, NGO and people from illegal activities.
This new approach could be a life-change in the Conservation field because the introduction of a middleman such as a conservation scientist as a mediator could satisfy the indigenous community demand and the counterpart’s requirements with its technical and scientific knowledge. For the moment another relevant update for the conservation field is the ‘Noah’s Ark Problem’ project whose regroup by phylogenetic diversity selection the most and significant species that could be at most useful and beneficial for the future of an ecosystem. The project is on collaboration with many universities and scientists of the sector.
