E-poster for WPC Stream 6: SADC TFCAs Wildlife crime and sustainable use

Resource Type: 
Description: 

This presentation stems from the knowledge derived from the past decade of fieldwork in the Great Limpopo Transfrontier Conservation Area, in all the three countries party to the TFCA, and specifically with local communities in and around the Protected Areas. It discusses the root causes for the supply side of the trade in wildlife, which has resulted in the depletion of rhino populations in Kruger National Park and highlights the need for a more inclusive participatory process for the direct benefits of communities from conservation.

The author is the Coordinator of the Animal and Human Health for Environment and Development in the Great Limpopo Transfrontier Conservation Area, since October 2012.
