Saving Wildlife Also Helps Reduce Poverty

A World Wildlife Fund report this week says that efforts to save pandas and tigers and gorillas can also reduce poverty and improve the lives of local communities in rural areas, like Nepal, Uganda, India, Namibia, Costa Rica and China. Species work not only helps eradicate poverty and hunger, but also promotes sustainable and fair development, and in some cases generates significant amounts of money through eco-tourism projects, which allow tourists to observe species in the wild, like marine turtles, pandas and mountain gorillas.
