On grouse shooting and conservation by James Common. He talks of compromise and quotes this: "Conservation cannot come at the expense of local people; local people must be made both partners and beneficiaries in conservation, and not enemies of it." Provenance of the quote not given.

I like it. I think it's important to work for important changes in attitudes towards non-human conservation by including human endeavour as part of nature instead of separating humans from nature, as tends to happen far too often. In other words, compromise.

Thanks for posting the link, interesting article. I will forward it to OH, it should provoke an interesting arguement discussion later today.
