Protected areas and Livestock Keepers’ Rights

“How to destroy biodiversity in protected areas?” asks this poster.
“Easy! Just ban traditional grazing there.”
Banning pastoralists from traditional grazing areas alters the balance of wildlife, making scarce species such as leopards, lions and bustards even scarcer.
This poster outlines how pastoralists are fighting such bans. It was prepared for the Working Group on Protected Areas on 11-15 February 2008 in Rome.
