In most developing countries endowed with wildlife, it is acknowledged that conservation can only be a success if people support conservation goals. But gaining this support often requires a crucial paradigm shift in the attitudes, perceptions and behaviours of both the people living with the resource and those responsible for management and decision-making in conservation.

In this talk, Victor Muposhi of the Chinhoyi University of Technology will explore the paradigm shift that is taking place in the philosophy of wildlife conservation in Zimbabwe. His lecture will focus on conservation sustainability in human mediated landscapes; conservation beyond biodiversity; approaches to partnering with corporations and conservationists; and how to maximise conservation and economic objectives at the same time.
