People have to understand that protecting the environment and maintaining
biological diversity is actually for their personal betterment.

Maybe. There are too many scare stories where the "personal betterment" was
interpreted as "economic disaster" by the people more closely involved. No
amount of /p/r/o/p/o/g/a/n/d/a/ education can cure something like that. If
you want people to be economically disadvantaged for something you see as a
benefit, you need to be willing to put up your $$$ to compensate. Then we
get a win-win situation.
