Wildlife Management


Wildlife Education Program III

The 10 Day Wildlife Management – Safari is packed with knowledge, skills, practical’s, values and qualities to successfully fulfil the role as a dedicated Wildlife Warden that form the thin green line between our natural resources and extinction. The wildlife on the continent of Africa represents the last remain mega fauna of the Pleistocene Epoch.



The 8 modules that will be presented on a Private Nature Reserve in Africa:

  • Wildlife Management
  • Species as a biological unit
  • Safari and Eco Tourism Industry
  • Elephant Management
  • Lion and Large Predator Management
  • Human and Wildlife Conflict
  • Trans Frontier Wildlife Initiatives
  • Projects that aim at achieving sustainable natural resource management

There are two general types of wildlife management:

Manipulative management acts on a population, either changing its numbers by direct means or influencing numbers by the indirect means of altering food supply, habitat, density of predators, or prevalence of disease. This is appropriate when a population is to be harvested, or when it slides to an unacceptably low density or increases to an unacceptably high level. Such densities are inevitably the subjective view of the land owner, and may be disputed by animal welfare interests. Production focus on Game and managed by a Wildlife Rancher

Custodial management is preventive or protective. The aim is to minimize external influences on the population and its habitat. It is appropriate in a national park where one of the stated goals is to protect ecological processes. It is also appropriate for conservation of a threatened species where the threat is of external origin rather than being intrinsic to the system. Production focus on Wildlife and managed by a Wildlife Warden
