Glossary of Wildlife Management Terms and Definitions
At its 69th session the United Nations General Assembly in September 2015 adopted a resolution reinforcing greater attention for wildlife conservation and management, stressing the need for collective efforts to address wildlife crime and to put an end to the global poaching crisis. In addition, the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, adopted by the United Nations General Assembly in September 2015, contains two relevant targets that address wildlife management.
Against this background, the online Glossary of Wildlife Management Terms and Definitions was initiated by the Collaborative Partnership on Sustainable Wildlife Management (CPW) and compiled by the International Union of Forest Research Organizations (IUFRO) together with the CPW members in order to raise awareness of the diverse usage and meanings of technical terms related to wildlife management and conservation.
The Glossary of Wildlife Management Terms and Definitions is a work-in-progress. Currently, the Glossary is comprised of about 250 terms and definitions in English, with equivalents presented in French, Spanish, and German. The content of the online resources will be updated periodically in order to ensure that the definitions remain up-to-date based on current knowledge and experience.
