The business of conservation – science, livelihoods and values

The 7th International Wildlife Ranching symposium took place at Kimberley from 10 - 14 October 2011. No formal proceedings of the papers presented will be published but some presenters have agreed that we may publish the slides of their presentations on our website. A number of presenters have indicated that they were planning to submit their papers for publication in South African Journal of Wildlife Research.

Feel free to contact the presenters for more information.

The next IWR symposium is scheduled for Mexico in 2013 under the direction of Raul Valdez.
