Conservation

Conservation

The conservation programme addresses questions concerning ecology and management of endemic and economically valuable species, vulnerable habitats and species in the NBR. The focus is enriched by understandings of ecosystem services and linkages between ecosystems, traditional use and indigenous perspectives, and markets and trade. The approach involves applied research, restoration efforts, outreach and knowledge networks with communities, academia and voluntary agencies.

The year in the conservation group set tone to an increased level of interactions with the indigenous communities, decision makers and other stakeholders; through the barefoot ecology programme, exploring payment for ecosystem services, understanding pollinators in agro-ecosystems and human-wildlife interactions. The conservation group set out to explore the cross-linkages between the programme areas at Keystone in-order to achieve effective conservation action.
