This is blog associated with a year-long course for MA students from the LBJ School of Public Affairs at the University of Texas-Austin. The course, supervised by Dr. Joshua Busby, will cover a number of topics related to global wildlife conservation including the recent uptick in poaching.

The sixteen contributors to the blog will be working in groups focused on six primary topics:

  • the security implications of wildlife trafficking
  • the impact of poaching on the ecotourism sector, particularly in Africa
  • efforts to address the demand side for wildlife, particularly from Asia
  • the impact of sport hunting on wildlife conservation
  • the scope for public private partnerships to enhance wildlife conservation
  • multilateral and regional initiatives to address wildlife conservation
