Intensive Wildlife Production


Author: Bothma/van Rooyen
Format: Hardback
Published: 2005

There is no doubt that extensive wildlife production in southern Africa has developed rapidly in recent years. However, the last few years have seen the development of intensive wildlife production too. Intensive production of wild animals often happens in small enclosed areas or areas of limited size and requires more intensive management than the extensive production of wildlife.
This book summarises the current knowledge on the intensive production of wild animals in southern Africa. It is based on the knowledge and experience of various authors.
The wildlife discussed includes the mega-herbivores, rare antelope, smaller herbivores, mini-antelope, carnivores and the ostrich. The information that is provided for each of the different wildlife species includes discussion of
characteristics – mass, size, age, growth, reproduction

habitat requirements
behaviour – social, sexual, feeding
holding and handling facilities
breeding stock
behaviour in captivity
