  • 4. In 1967, the Government of Namibia (then German Southwest Africa)reinterpreted its conservation law, giving de-facto ownership of wildlife overto landholders, the then mostly-white farmers and ranchers. Whereas, priorto that, wildlife had been a liability, private-ownership allowed land-holdersto profit from the wildlife on their lands, initially by selling hunting rights tofriends and neighbors, later to foreign trophy-hunters.The additional income became so significant that many of the landholdersbegan converting their crop-farms or cattle-ranches into hunting-ranches.Zimbabwe (then Rhodesia) had been experimenting along the same lines.These new models were so successful, both ecologically and economically,that South Africa enacted similar legislation, and a revolution in game-ranching began.
  • 5. Over the next few decades, some 20 million hectares of South African farmand ranch-land were given over to wildlife, an area equivalent to the entirenational park system of the United States. Much of that land was restored tovirtually complete biodiversity via normal ecological succession and beganproviding all of ecosystem services previously eliminated by the ecologicallydisruptive farming and ranching practices.Later, it was recognized that Indigenous Peoples and other rural tribalcommunities might also benefit from the wildlife on their lands, and anothermodel, also based upon private-ownership and the sustainable-use, wasimplemented. Thus began the Community-Based-Natural-Resource-Management (CBNRM) programs, with similar beneficial results.
