Summary This paper explores some of the dilemmas in operating as both a good community development practitioner and a good ecological citizen. It begins with a brief casestudy of an experience of community development engagement with nongovernment organisations (NGOs) concerned about illegal logging in a South East Asian country. This is followed by a discussion of the different ways of understanding and evaluating the threats to the natural environment today and the various strategies that might be invoked. The paper then considers why operating as a 'good ecological citizen' can be a challenging task for community development practitioners and it discusses some ways forward.
