The wild harvesting of animals such as the Yellow Anaconda has the potential to be used as a conservation tool for the species itself and for the protection of it's habitats. The economic incentives that the local communities receive are directly linked to the habitat, producing strong reasons for them to protect and care for the natural areas.
