This chapter examines wildlife conservation in Africa, focusing on how South Africa is dealing with conservation challenges that are common to all African countries. It describes the obstacles that confront wildlife conservation in Africa: diminishing financial support from the government, declining profitability of parks, loss of skilled staff, changing social expectations of product quality, land claims by descendants of evicted residents, and ecosystem limitations including migration, diseases, reduced water quantity and quality, fire, and the impact of large herbivores. It also discusses the establishment of transfrontier parks that are dedicated to wildlife conservation and ecotourism.

Keywords:   wildlife conservation, Africa, South Africa, conservation, parks, ecosystem limitations, transfrontier parks
