A wildlife manager is a spokesperson for wildlife, a custodian of a variety of public interests, and a key element in the decision-making process regarding land use. This demanding role requires basic
knowledge of wildlife species and their biological requirements, and a skill in people management. This book should provide sufficient insight into the appropriate mechanisms for achieving these aims. An exposure to
such subject areas as animal physiology, ecology, wildlife nutrition and wildlife biology is assumed, and the writers concentrate on the historical bases for, and modern influences on, wildlife policy and management.
