This paper reviews the results on public education in Gaoligongshan region,West Yunnan in July 1992 to May 1994.The region is  rich in biodiversity but threatened,and the local public is neither cherishing the nature nor understanding the conservation.We launched the conservation education  in order to save the region's natural resources.During education period,we concluded some important principles of education.The local public,through the action,not only  understand elementary knowledge of protecting the environment,but also know the sustained use of the natural resources benefits themselves and descendants,so they subscribe to control and select hunting forstabilizing the wildlife population,and change the method of cultivation such as swidden agriculture and plan to open up woods for safeguarding the natural forests.We,for the future education at the basic and in multinational area,put forward some suggestions in this report.
