Killing for Conservation

Wildlife Policy in Zimbabwe

by Rosaleen Duffy

  • Description
  • Reviews
Examines conservation and wildlife policies in Zimbabwe.
Wildlife conservation policy is often discussed within the braoder debates of sustainable development. The case study of Zimbabwe illustrates how the politically controversial policy agenda of wildlife utilization is part of the wider realm of global environmental politics.

Is African wildlife under threat from African people?
Large-scale poaching feeds an international demand for ivory and rhino horn

Is there a conflict between theideologies of preservation and conservation?
'Preservation' is concerned with protecting a habitat from any use; 'conservation' allows for managed use.

Are conservation strategies politically neutral?
Theway that wildlife issues are presented masks the inherently political nature of conservation policy-making at the local, national and international levels.

Does Campfire live up to its reputation?
Does Zimbabwe's much-vaunted community-based Campfire programme, which permits animal culling profits to be used for community development , live up to its reputation?
