ILLESCAS, Jimena  e  MONTIEL, Salvador. The artificial nests associated with the payment for environmental services in a mayan community of Campeche: characteristics and social attributes for its implementation. Acta Zool. Mex [online]. 2018, vol.34, e3411187. ISSN 2448-8445.

Artificial nests constitute a conservation strategy for wild birds in community areas linked to Payment for Environmental Services (PES) in Mexico. However, this artificial nest strategy lacks of official technical guidelines for its implementation, demanding consequently capabilities of local stakeholders to carry out it in specific socio-environmental contexts. Here, we describe the artificial nests linked to PES, highligthing local capabilities and social perceptions underlying this conservation strategy in a Mayan community of Campeche, Mexico. Based on field observations and semi-structured interviews applied to local people (peasant-fishermen) partipating in PES, we found that the registered artificial nests (N = 42) were considered only by 52% of the interviewees as “nesting sites” for at least 25 regional bird species. Our results show that nowdays the features, placement and target species associated to the artificial nests depend only of skills and capabilities of local stakeholders.
