NATIONAL PARKS AND WILDLIFE MANAGEMENT
RHODESIA AND ZIMBABWE 1928 – 1990
An Historic and Anecdotal Account of those who Served.
by Michael Bromwich.
“Such men were legends in their time and must not be forgotten”
A superb, and unique, record of the work and ethos of what was once acclaimed the finest wildlife agency in Africa, and the rest of the world. Spanning a period of 80 years with first-hand personal reports, documented data and historic photos all relating to the creation and aspirations of a truly effective wildlife management team, this book also describes the pioneer days when working for conservation was a hands-on operation.
Acknowledging the role each person played, from the illiterate but outstanding local trackers, scouts and rangers that roughed it on foot and horseback, wives that raised and educated children in remote wild areas, to researchers, ‘office-wallahs’ and policy-makers, Michael Bromwich has included them all. Operation Noah, the building of Kariba, the War, translocation of wild animals, tourism and conservation education for children were all part of the success of this fine team of men and women.
This second edition is magnificent. With a list of all who served and their last posting, over 700 photographs, maps, sketches, a glossary, and index there are a few important additions to the first edition which rapidly sold out. A collectors book – a legacy! ISBN 978 0 620 61929 5 Published 2020 by Michael Bromwich email@example.com
