This chapter focuses on the general awakening of conservation organizations throughout the world. In this transition, organizations are learning that if they hope to sustain biophysical systems, they need to pay more attention to how their actions affect the health and interests of local human communities. This transition is still a work in progress as new professional educational curricula are put in place, as changes in the recruitment of professionals are made, and as changes in the cultures of the organizations are established. Furthermore, resource professionals accustomed to working in the lightly populated corners of the world can gain necessary lessons emerging from urban places on what works and what does not as they try to integrate human realities into their policies, planning, and management practices.

Keywords:   conservation organizations, biophysical systems, human communities, educational curricula, urban places, human realities
