Optimizing Biological Diversity within Wildlife Ranching systems; A Pilot Demonstration in A Semi-arid Zone

Project Summary

It will also proceed with the gradual integration and effective participation of the populations established around a game ranch (Nazinga Game Ranch) into the ranch management operations. In addition, it proposes to set up an infrastructure for applied research and training which will be beneficial to other game ranching projects at the regional level.
