What is it about?
This study explores how to connect traditional knowledge with ecological restoration and conservation. Engagement of local people can be obtained by direct participation of the public, in what is called citizen science. It presumes that scientists are open to a research approach taking responsibility for the environment in which they work. We illustrate this in a field project among Bedouins from the Wadi Allaqi area in South Egypt.
