OIE Collaborating Centrefor Training inIntegrated LivestockandWildlife Health and Management,Onderstepoort

Presenter:Prof Koos CoetzerDeputy Dean: Research, Postgraduate Studies and InternationalizationFaculty of Veterinary ScienceUniversity of Pretoria

Transfrontier ParksCurrent trends:

Development of TFCAs with major focus on wildlife and culturally based tourism

Infrastructure development and removal of fences (and other barriers) to encourage tourism and restore mobility of wildlife over larger landscapes

High expectations for tourism development and wealth generation on the part of governments, parks agencies and TFCA residents

But, serious wildlife, livestock and associated human and resource use issues remain to be addressed across national and land use boundaries

ContextThe activities of the proposed collaborating Centre will be supportedby the following institutions:

Lead Institution: Department of Veterinary Tropical Diseases, Faculty of Veterinary Science, UP, SA (Contact person: Prof JAW Coetzer) University of Pretoria (Centre for Veterinary Wildlife Studies, Department of Animal and Wildlife Sciences, Department of Agricultural Economics, Extension and Rural Development)
