Conservation practice that was launched in Nepal in the early Seventies had limited scope- species protection. The approach has come a long way. Now it has evolved into comprehensive landscape level approach that goes beyond natural reserves. This approach departs from the fragmented vision of conservation and deals with environment as a contiguous landscape that may extend beyond political borders. One of the important lessons learnt from the decades of conservation practice in Nepal is that encouraging results come only from awareness and involvement of the local people. Community participation has brought desirable results where the armed guards have failed.
