The role of Traditional Ecological Knowledge in conservation

“….when traditional knowledge is combined with sound scientific knowledge, new models for conservation and management of large carnivores are produced that sustain a symbiotic and beneficial integration of people with their environment.”  PCP

This excerpt is from a guest commentary written by Raincoast’s Dr. Paul Paquet on the role of Traditional Ecological Knowledge (TEK) in conservation.  It was published in the 5th edition (2015) of “Environmental and Resource Management in Canada“, edited by Bruce Mitchell.
