Local Communities Conserve Their Environment, Support Their Economy

“Communities Linking Conservation and Livelihoods – Ingredients of Success” is the first animation video produced by the Community Conservation Research Network (CCRN).

This animation video explores how local communities take action to conserve the natural environment they depend on, and sustain their local economies and livelihoods. Focusing on the experiences of two communities, the Eastport Peninsula in Canada and Koh Pitak in Thailand, the animation video highlights community efforts to restore ecosystems, safeguard important natural areas, and diversify economies – all of this making the environment and community livelihoods more sustainable for current and future generations. In emphasizing the important contribution of local communities to environmental conservation, the video also notes the need for the right kind of government support to community initiatives.
