By Richard Margoluis, Samuel Myers, Jonnell Allen, Juanita Roca, Mary Melnyk, Jennifer Swanson, 2001, Biodiversity Support Program (BSP) It is clear that many local populations rely directly on the biodiversity around them for survival, and that they prefer not to destroy it. How then can the conservation community take advantage of this naturally occurring incentive to conserve? What are some of the characteristics of community-based conservation and development projects that successfully link human health to conservation? This document examines human health at personal, family, and community levels as a motivating force for conservation.
