The interaction of isolated Taobuid communities with mainstream society introduced them to packaged products that can be obtained through trade using cash or exchange. The packaging of these products (plastic wrappers, bottles, or tin cans), therefore, can accumulate in the highlands of the natural park if not properly managed. We have introduced a simple waste segregation scheme that separates bottles, plastics, and tin cans in different vessels (sacks). When full, the sacks are transported by porters to Station 1 for proper disposal. The practice of waste segregation, however, is a challenging behaviour to establish, even among our field staff and rangers. The need to establish and maintain a waste segregation system becomes crucial, especially when the park opens to tourists.ย
