Managing our Wildlife Heritage
This inexpensive little book was written as a ‘handbook for nature lovers’ at the behest of South Africa’s three main hunter associations. It explains the principles and practices of wildlife management (‘conservation’) in simple to understand layman’s language. It should be an obligatory acquisition for every nature-loving hunter’s bookshelf – worldwide. Non-hunting nature-lovers would also learn a great deal from reading this exciting little book.
Dr. John Ledger, a conservationist of note in South Africa, and a leading light in the Wildlife and Environmental Society of South Africa (WESSA), says of this little booklet:
“… I found myself engrossed in a work of great substance and importance. Don’t let the small size of this book fool you. It is one of the best and most lucid guides to conservation and wildlife management that I have ever read.
This book is packed with concise and practical information about natural resource management. It should be prescribed reading for all biology teachers, naturalists and interested citizens, and I recommend it without reservation to all our WESSA members and hope it will find its way into the environmental education programmes of the society. Ron Thomson writes without fear or favour. His mind is well organised. His innovative solutions to difficult wildlife management problems are compelling. And nobody articulates them quite like he does.”
