Abstract

In the past conservation management was relatively simple. A fence was erected around reserves and animals and plants were managed within the fenced areas. By the 1980's there was a worldwide call for greater community involvement in conservation management. Results of investigations are considered in relation to different models for benefit between reserves and communities.
