Australian Wildlife Conservancy  The mission of the Australian wildlife Conservancy is the effective conservation of all Australian animal species and the habitats in which they live.  The Biodiversity Crisis:  Australia is one of only 17 countries recognized as "megadiverse", meaning we support a significant proportion of the world's biodiversity.  Over 80% of our mammals, reptiles and flowering plants are endemic.  Australia has the worst mammal extinction rate in the world.  Altogether, 27 mammal species have become extinct since the arrival of European settlers a little more than 200 years ago.

Proceedings of the National Feral Deer Management Workshop (2008)  "Wild deer are an emerging pest management problem in Australia. Unfortunately there is no consensus on how best to manage deer as they continue to expand their range and increase in density."


Management of Wild Deer in Auystralia, (2005) Graham P. Hall and Kate P. Gill, Journal of Wildlife Management 69(3):837-844   Abstract:  "Deer were introduced to Australia in the 19th centery, and today 6 species have been established in the wild.  Australians have considered deer a pest and an important economic and hunting resource since their early introduction."

The liberation, distribution, abundance and management of wild deer in Australia  Andrew Moriarty   Abstract:  "It is estimated that Australia currently has 200,000 wild deer . . . Management strategies for wild deer in Australia need to be developed by land managers to address the escape and release of deer from farms, the illegal translocation of deer into the wild and the management of existing deer herds."


Clark McGhie from Australian Wild Country Adventures discusses the management and possible loss of Chital Deer management in Australia.

The policies of collectivization and the ancient traditions of local land management foster distinctive demographic and settlement conditions with relatively high population densities but stable land tenure. In comparison with many rural tropical and subtropical regions elsewhere in the world, where logging by impoverished settlers has left large swaths of heavily degraded land, there has been little in-migration and deforestation in recent years (Sponsel, Bailey, and Headland 1996). Although large-scale migrations of landless peasants rapidly deforested this part of China in centuries past, today the mountains and high valleys support a diverse weave of vegetation types in different phases of succession and under a variety of managerial regimes (Averill 1983; Hou 1983).

Decline of musk deer in China and prospects for management  Geng Shusheng and Ma Shila Conservation Biology Centre, Kumming Institute of Zoology, The Chinese Academy of Sciences, Kunming, Yunnan 650223, PRC.  "n spite of the prominence that conservation of biodiversity has achieved in the world (McNeely 1992), the rate of decline of species with high commercial value is still increasing. The limited arable land and human demand for materials have become major factors contributing to declines in biological resources (Ma et al. 1997). Musk deer have long been famous for the musk that only the male produces. Due to the limited supply of natural musk, musk has been a major item of international trade and the object of smuggling from this region over a long period of time (Sheng 1987, 1992; Liu 1996). The population of wild musk deer has suffered heavy pressure, and the species is on the brink of extinction."

Multicriteria Evaluation of Wildlife Management Units in Campeche, Mexico Journal of Wildlife Management, Gabriela García-Marmolejoa, Griselda Escalona-Seguraa,1, and Hans Van Der Wala
"Since 1997 the Mexican government has promoted Management Units for Conservation and Sustainable Use of Wildlife (UMAs) on private and community lands as an economically attractive mean for the conservation of biodiversity. To date, compliance of UMAs with stated sustainability goals has not been evaluated. . .We conclude that the contribution of UMAs to the conservation and sustainable use of biodiversity could be improved by a number of actions. These include developing wildlife management educational programs with a strong environmental legislation component, the correct enforcement of wildlife laws, and creating country-wise links among academic and governmental institutions promoting the work with regional and national wildlife experts."

UK INDICATORS OF SUSTAINABLE FORESTRY:    As a signatory to the Convention on Biological Diversity, the UK is committed to conserving and enhancing biodiversity and has set out objectives, priorities and targets in the UK Biodiversity Action Plan (BAP - See the UK Biodiversity website). Forestry aims to contribute towards the aims and targets of the UK BAP: . To conserve and where practical enhance overall populations and natural ranges of native species and the quality and range of wildlife habitats and ecosystems within woodlands.  . To help conserve and enhance internationally and nationally important and threatened species, habitats and ecosystems and of natural and managed habitats which are characteristic of local areas. . To increase public awareness and involvement with woodland biodiversity conservation.  In general the most important woodland types for biodiversity are ancient seminatural
woodlands (ASNW), closely followed by other forms of native or ancient woodlands (B1 - B3), which have native tree and shrub species and/or a long continuous history as woodland. Eight types of native woodland habitats
are priority habitats in the UK BAP.
