Poster on herding and biodiversity
“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.
“Pastoralists and small-scale livestock keepers are crucial to conserving farm animal genetic resources”, says this poster, presented by LPP at the 13th meeting of the Subsidiary Body on Scientific, Technical and Technological Advice of the Convention on Biological Diversity, 18-22 Feb 2008 in Rome.
