Local community play very important role in environmental conservation process and
Participation of them in management of wildlife is the key for conservation of natural
resources. The main approach to wildlife management and conservation has been to include
the local people to gain their cooperation and support, which have eventually resulted in
integrated conservation and development. To find out the level of local communities
environmental awareness and their concept regarding environmental conservation,
questionnaire have been circulated among them in 9 villages around the Shir-Ahmad wildlife
refuge. The results reveal that most of them have willingness to protect this wildlife refuge if
government pays attention to the conflict resolution.
