PRIVATE GAME | WILDLIFE RANCHING
PRIVATE GAME | WILDLIFE RANCHING With its magnificent and diverse wildlife heritage, Southern Africa plays a vital role in conserving the world’s biological diversity. The region boasts an extensive network of public parks, including international icons such as the Kruger, Hluhluwe-iMfolozi, Kgalagadi, Etosha, Chobe and Hwange, several of which also form part of larger transfrontier conservation areas. The region is known for its excellent track record of conserving threatened species such as elephant, rhino, Cape mountain zebra, bontebok, black wildebeest, cheetah and lion. An important aspect is the unique and vital role the private sector and market-based approaches play in supporting both wildlife conservation and socio-economic development in the region. Southern Africa’s wildlife industry has become a contemporary world leader in conservation innovation, providing considerable ecological, biodiversity and economic benefits to the region.” Wildlife ranchers love nature and are conservationists at heart – that is why they choose this lifestyle. Conceptualised by the executive editorial team of the popular publication Wildlife Ranching magazine, PRIVATE GAME will build on the successes achieved by Wildlife Ranching, whilst providing an engaging voice for the private wildlife sector.
