Protected areas are the main focus for the maintenance of wildlife resources and contribute for economic developments of a nation. However, they face significant challenges in meeting human and wildlife needs. Although most communities viewed protected areas and wildlife favorably, the lack of benefits limited local willingness to encourage conservation work.
