Actions for protecting biodiversity need to be taken on the local scale, thus we need broad involvement of general public in conservation efforts. Everyone’s nature conservation is a concept that emphasizes the role of voluntary conservation efforts of individuals and small communities in improving the condition of habitats and species. I will introduce the conservation actions within everyone’s nature conservation and hope to have everybody’s input to the discussion about the possibilities of incentivizing general public in conservation actions.
