Abstract: Based on the assumption that the success of community-based conservation is dependent on the support of the local communities, many conservation practices have attempted to increase the participation of the local communities in conservation planning and decision-making processes. Despite such effort, many community-based conservation initiatives remain ineffective, and in the Pacific Islands, the main reason for this inefficacy is placed on the lack of community support. To better comprehend the local people’s actions and behaviours in conservation efforts in the Pacific Islands, this study examines the motivational factors that incite (or do not) community support in conservation through the case studies of four community-based conservation sites in the rural island of North Tarawa, Kiribati.
