Biological diversity on the planet is declining fast. To curb this crisis, governments, associations and private foundations have joined forces to create vast networks of national parks on all continents. Nowadays, protected areas represent the largest category of land use globally. However, in developing countries, efforts to conserve biodiversity in many parks have not been effective and have often negatively affected poor and vulnerable populations, leading to resistance from and conflicts with these communities. Social equity is thus crucial in managing parks (Martin 2017). Having the poorest people affected by conservation so that affluent consumers can enjoy nature raises strong ethical concerns. How can we make nature conservation more just1 and ensure that the benefits and costs are equitably shared?
