Description:

Effect of Diversity of Large Wildlife Species on Financial Benefits to Local Communities in Northwest Namibia.

Summary / Notes:

There exist few quantitative assessments of the relationship between biodiversity per se and economic benefits at scales that are relevant for conservation. Similarly, the merits of Community-Based Natural Resource Management programs for both wildlife and people are contested. Here, we harness two databases, on wildlife surveys and financial benefits, to address these issues for communal conservancies in northwest Namibia. We use ordination methods to characterize the diversity and stability of large wildlife assemblages on conservancies, and demonstrate that diversity (but not stability) is an important explanator of conservancy financial benefits. Our results indicate that for this area of Namibia, biodiversity, as represented by large wildlife assemblages, has an important, positive effect on the tangible financial benefits that people derive from conservation programs. Keywords: Africa, Biodiversity, Community-based conservation, Community, ecology, Ecosystem services, Diversity, Ecotourism, Stability, Wildlife.
