Arguing Tropical Forest Conservation: People versus Parks
In this paper the authors agree with Terborgh point of view that nature reserves with minimal human influence are an important component of any conservation strategy in any country. However, the point of controversy is how best to achieve a much broader, more comprehensive conservation of nature in a region such as Amazonia, where four‐fifths of the forest are still standing. In this setting, it is counterproductive to insist that the only nature worth preserving is pristine, with no human influence, as Terborgh and Redford & Sanderson seem to be saying. To pursue this narrow interpretation of nature conservation is to ignore the scale and timing of human threats to this forest.
