Philosophy that drive Conservation
According to many indigenous peoples' core belief, every natural thing on earth has a living energy. Things that are considered non-living by Western science are alive-such things as stones and water are alive and are inter connected with each another. All non-humans, such as swamps, creeks and rivers have energies that make them unique. These energies are responsible for their well-being. Humans should take this into consideration when dealing with the natural environment.
Enabling the Understanding of Traditional Management Techniques If we are to fully understand the importance of conservation done by indigenous peoples, then the job of education has to come from indigenous peoples themselves. This can be supported by those who understand how native peoples contribute to the preservation of our planet.
Learning from other indigenous peoples who live in similar environment has
enabled communities to survive just as well as their neighbours. On this
level, indigenous people tend to acknowledge and respect the presence of other
communities within their geographical area and region.
In today's world of climate change, people from all backgrounds need to conserve and preserve. Non-traditional conservation techniques can complement traditional ones and vice-versa. This is where indigenous and non-indigenous people can co-operate and work together.
