Local costs of conservation exceed those borne by the global majorityJonathan M.H. Green, Brendan Fisher , Rhys E. Green , Joseph Makero , Philip J. Platts , Neema Robert , Marije Schaafsma, R. Kerry Turner, Andrew Balmford2017




Cost data are crucial in conservation planning to identify more efficient and equitable land use options. However, many studies focus on just one cost type and neglect others, particularly those borne locally. We develop, for a high priority conservation area, spatial models of two local costs that arise from protected areas: foregone agricultural opportunities and increased wildlife damage. We then map these across the study area and compare them to the direct costs of reserve management, finding that local costs exceed management costs. Whilst benefits of conservation accrue to the global community, significant costs are borne by those living closest. Where livelihoods depend upon opportunities forgone or diminished by conservation...

Allometric models for managing lowland miombo woodlands of the Beira corridor in MozambiqueBenard S. Guedes , Almeida A. Sitoe & Bengt A. Olsson2018




Appropriate allometric models are urgently needed to assess the status and changes in biomass and carbon of the trees in miombo woodlands occupying large geographical areas in Mozambique. This study developed two new and interchangeable allometric models for estimating total above-ground biomass (AGB) of lowland miombo woodlands in the Beira corridor, central Mozambique, based on stem diameter at breast height (DBH) and stump diameter (SDI). The Beira corridor study area covers approximately 29,000 km2, of which about three-quarters is lowland miombo woodland. The SDI-based model is proposed principally for estimating total AGB (stem, branches, foliage) of harvested trees/shrubs when diameter cannot be measured at breast height, and thus...

Characterisation of spatial and temporal distribution of the fire regime in Niassa National Reserve, northern MozambiqueN. S. Ribeiro, A. Cangela, A. Chauque, R. R. Bandeira and A. I. Ribeiro-Barros2017




The Niassa National Reserve (NNR) is the largest conservation area of the Miombo woodlands in southern Africa, representing one of the most remote and pristine biodiversity spots. Anthropogenic fires have long been one of the main ecological drivers in these woodlands. However, the constraint in understanding fire effects results from limited data and accessibility to existing fire records. This study is intended to contribute to the understanding of fire ecology in these woodlands by assessing the fire regime in NNR. We used the moderate resolution imaging spectroradiometer (MODIS) daily active fire (MDC14ML) and burned-area (MCD45A1) products to characterise the fire regime in terms of seasonality, intensity, density, burned area, freq...

Predictors of elephant poaching in a wildlife crime hotspot: The Ruvuma landscape of southern Tanzania and northern MozambiqueN. Zafra-Calvo, J.M. Lobo, C. Prada, M.R. Nielsen, N.D. Burgess2018




Understanding the spatial distribution of elephant carcasses in relation to ecological characteristics and human activities is critical to developing targeted management strategies for reducing poaching. We employ a spatial modelling approach to quantify the relative contribution of multiple climatic, ecological, human and protected area management predictors of the number of elephant carcasses in a recognized poaching hotspot: the Ruvuma landscape of northern Mozambique and southern Tanzania. This includes the Niassa Reserve in the south and the Selous Game Reserve in the north. In Mozambique, the number of elephant carcasses is positively associated with State-managed protected areas such as Niassa Reserve, but particularly with environme

Territoriality by Conservation in the Selous–Niassa Corridor in TanzaniaJevgeniy Bluwstein & Jens Friis Lund2018




In this paper we argue that historically emerging frontiers of conservation pave the way for continuous top–down territorialization. Drawing on a concrete case in the Selous–Niassa Corridor in Southern Tanzania, we show how a frontier emerged in the form of community-based conservation. Decades of consecutive and continuous territorialization projects, based on mapping and boundary making, have ensured that conservation is beyond questioning, despite failures in the processes of demarcating, controlling, and managing this large-scale socio-spatial intervention. Although these failures produce territorial conflicts and confusions on the ground, we argue that in the context of a conservation frontier the gap between the envisioned ideal and..

Protected areas (PAs) are fundamental for biodiversity conservation, yet their impacts on nearby residents are contested. We synthesized environmental and socioeconomic conditions of >87,000 children in >60,000 households situated either near or far from >600 PAs within 34 developing countries. We used quasi-experimental hierarchical regression to isolate the impact of living near a PA on several aspects of human well-being. Households near PAs with tourism also had higher wealth levels (by 17%) and a lower likelihood of poverty (by 16%) than similar households living far from PAs. Children under 5 years old living nearmultiple-use PAs with tourism also had higher height-for-age scores (by 10%) and were less likely to be stunted (by 13%)...

Anti-poaching’s politics of (in)visibility: Representing nature and conservation amidst a poaching crisisFrancis Massé2019




Conservation organizations are increasingly using tourism and social media to raise funds and support for antipoaching interventions. This article examines how these strategies represent poaching and the responses that areostensibly needed to disrupt it. To do so, I draw on ethnographic fieldwork in the rhino poaching hotspot of the Mozambique-South Africa borderlands and analyze social media and tourism campaigns from organizations in the area. These campaigns emphasize violently decimated wildlife, threatened rangers, and the subsequent need for a securitized conservation. They obscure or neglect the social relations influencing poaching and related violence, other conservation priorities, and the implications of hardline enforcement...

Worldwide decline of the entomofauna: A review of its driversFrancisco Sánchez-Bayo & Kris A.G. Wyckhuys2019




Biodiversity of insects is threatened worldwide. Here, we present a comprehensive review of 73 historical reports of insect declines from across the globe, and systematically assess the underlying drivers. Our work reveals dramatic rates of decline that may lead to the extinction of 40% of the world's insect species over the next few decades. In terrestrial ecosystems, Lepidoptera, Hymenoptera and dung beetles (Coleoptera) appear to be the taxa most affected, whereas four major aquatic taxa (Odonata, Plecoptera, Trichoptera and Ephemeroptera) have already lost a considerable proportion of species. Affected insect groups not only include specialists that occupy particular ecological niches, but also many common and generalist species...

Leveraging local livelihood strategies to support conservation and development in West AfricaAby Sene-Harpera, David Matarrita-Cascante, Lincoln R. Larson2019


2019


Over the past 30 years, the promotion of alternative occupations has been central to livelihoodcentered conservation projects (LCP). However, continued pressure on protected areas and high poverty levels in surrounding communities suggest that other LCP approaches may be needed. One historically understudied approach focuses on enhancing pre-existing livelihood strategies to achieve conservation and development goals. We assessed the efficacy of the alternative occupations and pre-existing livelihood strategies approaches to LCPs using two case studies of adjacent protected areas along the Senegal River in West Africa. One community in Senegal promotes tourism as an alternative occupation; another in Mauritania builds on the local...

Cost-benefit analysis of increasing sampling effort in a baitedcamera trap survey of an African leopard (Panthera pardus) populationAllan Tarugara, Bruce W. Clegg, Edson Gandiw, Victor K. Muposh2019




The use of baits at camera trap stations has been shown to increase capture rates in population surveys of large carnivores. This study set out to establish the most costeffective density and duration of sampling for baited-camera trapping (BCT) of leopards in a semi-arid savanna environment. To determine this, we used batches of 30 BCT stations (sampling occasions) to survey a population of leopards (Panthera pardus) at Malilangwe Wildlife Reserve in south-eastern Zimbabwe from July to October 2017. We applied combinations of low to high sampling densities (2e7 occasions) and short to long sampling durations (2e14 days) and observed the effects on population estimates and cost of conducting the survey. Sixty-one leopards were identified...

Vegetation structure and effects of human use of the dambos ecosystem in northern MozambiqueAires Afonso Mbanze, Amade Mario Martins, Rui Rivaes, Ana I. Ribeiro-Barros, Natasha Sofia Ribeiro2019




The Niassa National Reserve (NNR) is the most extensive conservation area in Mozambique and the third largest in Africa, encompassing 42,000 km2 of endemic miombo vegetation. Dambos wetlands occur within the wooded grassland and grassland vegetation of NNR and provide a wide range of Ecosystem Services (ES), including life support for animal species, regulation of water flow and prevention of soil erosion. It also generates income for the livelihoods of local communities by providing land for agriculture and harvesting of non-timber products. The dynamics of these ecosystems is poorly understood despite the contribution of the dambos to global biodiversity and ES. This research is the first preliminary assessment of the vegetation...

ANNUAL REPORT 2015-Niassa Carnivore ProjectNiassa Carnivore Project2015




Niassa National Reserve (NNR) is located in northern Mozambique on the border with Tanzania. It is both one of the largest protected areas (42 000 km2; 16000 ml2) and most undeveloped places in Africa. The protected area supports the largest concentrations of wildlife remaining in Mozambique including at least a third of the national lion population (1000-1200 individuals out of a National population estimated at 2700 lions) and more than 350 African wild dogs. Free-ranging African lions (Panthera leo) have declined over the last century to fewer than 24,000 today (Riggio et al., 2012; Bauer et al., 2015). While lions are still listed as vulnerable across their whole African range, in the majority of their range, particularly in Eastern...

IMPACT OF WILDFIRE ON INSECT DIVERSITY IN THE SELOUS GAME RESERVE, TANZANIAKelvin Ngongolo and Bruno. A. Nyundo2015




Occurrence of fire is inevitable in the Selous Game Reserve which is among the UNESCO world Heritage sites. Apart from prescribed burning, un-prescribed burning was observed to occur in this reserve which was anticipated to deteriorate the wildlife species including insects. This study aimed at determining the impacts of fire on insects of the Selous. Pitfall traps were used in the collection of insects samples in the three designed study sites namely; burnt grassland, un-burnt grassland and burnt woodland. The findings showed that, fire had significant (what level of significance) impacts on diversity and not on abundance of insects. High diversity was observed in un-burnt grassland than in the burnt grassland. However it was eminent...

The African lion (Panthera leo) is an iconic species of the African continent, classified as vulnerable by the IUCN. Infectious diseases are one main threat for the survival of this species. However, the impact of parasitic infections has been overlooked and poorly documented. In order to characterise the para-sitological fauna of these animals, a study was carried out in the Niassa National Reserve (NNR), Northern Mozambique, where a large population of lions lives. In partnership with the Niassa Lion Project and the administration of the Niassa Reserve, 44 lion faecal samples were collected in an area of 600 km² (Concession L5-South), and later processed and analysed at the Laboratory of Parasit-ology and Parasitic Diseases, Faculty of...

Carbon Storage in Secondary Mangroves along the West Coastline of Maputo City, MozambiqueTarquinio Mateus Magalhães2018




Mangroves are often excluded when estimating carbon (C) from global and tropical forests. Therefore, C estimates of global and tropical forests are likely to be underestimated. On the other hand, allometric biomass models and C stocks estimates are lacking for juvenile mangrove trees (seedling and sapling), yet required for increasing of young successional mangrove forests as result of disturbances. In this study, allometric biomass models were fitted and ecosystem C stock estimated for a juvenile secondary mangrove forest, using a non-destructive biomass sampling. Besides the advantage of enforcing additivity and being least biased, the models fitted simultaneously using nonlinear seemingly unrelated regression (NSUR) with parameter restri

Socio-economic impacts of private forest investment on local livelihoods in Niassa, MozambiqueMaja Bleyer2014




The low population density and consequent high land availability in Niassa, Mozambique have attracted foreign private forest investments. Since 2005 forest companies have acquired the right to establish forest plantations in the area, which naturally affects the livelihoods in communities located close by. This study aimed to analyse the impact of forest plantations on the livelihood and wealth of local communities. The main objectives were the evaluation of impacts on natural resources, livelihood strategies and differences in the experienced impacts between different wealth groups. With these objectives, household interviews, focus group meetings and key informant interviews were held in five different villages in the province of...

The Space Between A geospatial analysis of connectivity between lion populations in East AfricaMatthew Rogan & Stuart Pimm,2014




Lion (Panthera leo) populations and habitat range are in steep decline. Lions are increasingly isolated in protected areas and other pockets of habitat. Habitat fragmentation lowers effective population size and increases vulnerability to threats such as inbreeding depression and localized catastrophes. Conserving connecting habitat between lion populations is critical for mitigating effects from fragmentation. With approximately half of all remaining lions and a rich network of protected areas, the East African Community presents vital opportunities to preserve connectivity. I collected 69,068 lion presence locations from field researchers and overlaid these locations with a suite of environmental variables. Due to strong biases in the ...

Poaching Rhino Horn in South Africa and Mozambique: Community and Expert Views From the TrenchesKenly Greer Fenio2014




This report illustrates attitudes garnered from nine focus groups in several poaching communities in and around South African and Mozambican game parks, and approximately 15 in-depth interviews with experts working in the parks. Although the communities exhibited differences, there also exist a common set of conditions in them: economically marginalized populations, anger toward the status quo, huge financial incentives from poaching, widespread corruption, and porous borders, all of which highlight the complex interaction of economic and political factors in perpetuating illicit wildlife trafficking. Until conservation and anti-poaching and trafficking efforts are ramped up, demand is reduced in Asian countries such as Viet Nam, and com...

2012


We define African savannahs as being those areas that receive between 300 and 1,500 mm of rain annually. This broad definition encompasses a variety of habitats. Thus defined, savannahs comprise 13.5 million km2 and encompass most of the present range of the African lion (Panthera leo). Dense human populations and extensive conversion of land to human use preclude use by lions. Using high-resolution satellite imagery and human population density data we define lion areas, places that likely have resident lion populations. In 1960, 11.9 million km2 of these savannahs had fewer than 25 people per km2. The comparable area shrank to 9.7 million km2 by 2000. Areas of savannah Africa with few people have shrunk considerably in the last 50 year...

A comparative study on bushmeat consumption patterns in ten tribes in TanzaniaSilvia Laura Ceppi1,2 and Martin Reinhardt Nielsen32014


2013


Bushmeat hunting is an important driver of wildlife depletion in Tanzania, but national-wide estimates of its consumption are lacking. We compare bushmeat consumption frequencies and determinants in ten tribes in different ecoregions in Tanzania, four of these within biodiversity hotspots of global conservation importance. Bushmeat consumption is examined in terms of ethnicity, selected indicators of wealth, and distance to and protection level of nearest protected area. Forty six percent of the respondents (n=300) belonging to nine of the ten tribes reported consuming bushmeat during the past 12 months, and 14% admitted that at least one household member hunted illegally. Significant differences in bushmeat consumption frequencies and...

Africa’s Protected Area (PA) estate includes some of the world’s most iconic wildlife and wildlands and preserves ecosystem services upon which people depend. However, Africa’s PAs are facing a growing array of threats resulting in significant degradation, factors compounded by chronic funding shortages. In this opinion piece, drawing from the available literature and collective experience of the author group, we look at the potential for collaborative management partnerships (CMPs) between state wildlife agencies and Non-Governmental Organisations (NGOs) to attract investment and technical capacity to improve PA performance. The three main CMP models—financial and technical support, co-management, and delegated management—yield median...

Projecting Mozambique’s Demographic FuturesJulia Zinkina & Andrey Korotayev2014


2014


The “medium” population projection series by the UN Population Division forecasts nearcatastrophic population increase for a whole number of Tropical African countries, especially East African ones. However, the projections for Mozambique, appearing somewhat less ominous than those for the neighboring Zambia, Tanzania, and Malawi, do not account for the recent fertility dynamics in Mozambique. Indeed, the projection implies a rather rapid fertility decline, while in reality it has been not just stalled, but even growing during the latest decade. We present our own population projection for Mozambique based on the UN version, but taking into account the recent fertility dynamics. We also model two more demographic scenarios, the “inertial...

Variation of Nutritional and Anti-Nutritional Contents in Finger Millet (Eleusine coracana (L.) Gaertn) GenotypesSolomon Igosangwa Shibairo, Oliver Nyongesa, Richard Onwonga and Jane Ambuko2014




Variation in nutritional and anti-nutritional contents among six finger millet genotypes was determined. Improved finger millet genotypes Gulu-E and FMV-1 from Kenya Agricultural Research Institute, KNE-479 and KNE 1034 from International Crops Research Institute for Semi-Arid Tropics (ICRISAT) and local landraces Ateso and Nyaikuro, were compared. There was no significant (p>0.05) difference in calcium (Ca), iron (Fe) and zinc (Zn) contents among the genotypes. Genotypes Ateso and Gulu-E had the highest crude fat contents while KNE-479 had the lowest. Genotypes KNE-479 and Nyaikuro had the highest crude protein content. Lowest crude protein contents were observed in genotypes Gulu-E and Ateso. Genotype Ateso followed by FMV-1 and Nyai...

The Development of a National Fire Danger Rating System for South AfricaCarla Willis, Brian van Wilgen, Kevin Tolhurst, Colin Everson, Peter D’Abreton, Lionel Pero and Gavin Fleming,2001


2001


During 1998, South Africa passed the new National Veld and Forest Fire Act (Act 101 of 1998), hereafter referred to as ‘the Act’. The Act provides for the prevention of veld, forest and mountain fires through the deployment of a National Fire Danger Rating System (NFDRS). Such a system does not exist at a national level at this stage, although localised fire danger rating systems are used in some regions. The Department of Water Affairs and Forestry (DWAF) therefore contracted the CSIR to develop a NFDRS for South Africa. The NFDRS was developed by a team of experts, in consultation with the Veld and Forest Fire Committee of the Department of Water Affairs and Forestry and several key stakeholders.

Private Supply of Protected Land in Southern Africa: A Review of Markets, Approaches, Barriers and IssuesWolf Krug2001


2001


This paper represents a first attempt to assess the role of the private sector in supplying protected land or ‘land under wildlife’ in southern Africa. Although limited information exists on private conservation initiatives, it is possible to conclude that the private sector plays an indispensable role in the provision of biodiversity in the region. A minimum of 14 million hectares of private land is under some form of wildlife protection or sustainable wildlife management. This equals almost half the size of the United Kingdom, or half the size of all state protected areas in the region. Private reserves, conservancies and game ranches protect critical habitat in various ecosystems and play an important role in the protection of highly...

2003


At the request of the Sociedade para a Gestão e Desenvolvimento da Reserva do Niassa and Fauna and Flora International, a botanical survey of the Niassa Reserve in northern Mozambique was carried out in June 2003. The objectives included compiling a preliminary plant species list, collecting herbarium specimens, providing an initial characterisation of the vegetation types found there, identifying species and areas of particular importance for conservation, and providing recommendations to management on plant conservation priorities. The survey team consisted of five botanists. Existing information on the vegetation and plants of the area is very limited. This was reviewed. Ground and aerial surveys were conducted over a 21 day period...
