In this chapter, C. Anne Claus, Kai M. A. Chan and Terre Satterfield highlight that understanding human activities and human roles in conservation is fundamental to effective conservation. Conservation is inherently a social process operating in a social context. As such, conservationists will benefit from a nuanced understanding of people's perceptions and behaviors as individuals and in organizations and institutions. While there is no easy recipe for how local resource users should participate in modern conservation initiatives, attentiveness to resource rights and equity are critical in every conservation project. A successful conservation movement will effectively integrate the natural sciences and diverse fields of social research.
