Yes indeed, although we are leavening it with heavy doses of local knowledge. It is a very good filter to help structure our analysis, identify gaps, and suggest places to look, but the fine scale work is only possible with boots - and hands, and hearts - on the ground and with the benefit of the detailed knoweldge that those who live in these communities have about the landscape and the status of properties of interest. And people share that knowledge to the extent that they believe the partnerships and products are consistant with their own values and attitudes. When both those who live on the land and those from outside working to conserve it find common ground that values what each brings to the table, it can be an ideal situation for community-based conservation work.
