About this book

The translocation of free-ranging wild animals is usually conducted for conservation or ecological reasons, the most dramatic being the restoration of animal populations to their original historical range. This important text is a collection of papers written by specialists in this field, intended both as a sourcebook for all workers in animal translocation, and a guide to conservation managers considering whether to translocate a species or not. General principles and guidelines are considered, before taking a number of case-studies, principally of North American and African species.
