Spoilered for Off Topic:
I would be very angry and resentful about not seeing any of the benefits from conserving that wildlife, while still being expected to bear most of the costs. What costs? Well, having my village's herds (and perhaps children) occasionally killed by big cats that we aren't allowed to kill, our fields trampled and eaten by big herbivores that we aren't allowed to eat (or harvest trophies from for resale), our prospects for farmland or building sites reduced by the government's annexation of large tracts of land as wildlife reserves, etc., etc.
Obvious economic Injustice like that pits local people against endangered species, and the endangered species often lose.
People really don't like being told that their needs are not as important as the needs of animals, or the needs of wealthy foreigners who want to kill those animals without competition from the local riffraff.
