1 The original paper was published in the Journal of the Society for the Preservation of the Wild Fauna of the Empire ( and ) or in Oryx, the journal of Fauna and Flora International (from 1951). The website of the journal is (from 2008): The PDF is reproduced with permission from the CD version of The Centenary Archive , a fully searchable database of 100 years of the publications of Fauna and Flora International. More information on: The Society was founded in 1903 as the Society for the Preservation of the Wild Fauna of the Empire, and subsequently named the Fauna and Flora Preservation Society. Fauna & Flora International is conserving the planet s threatened species and ecosystems with the people and communities who depend on them. Oryx - The International Journal of Conservation, is now published quarterly by Cambridge University Press on behalf of Fauna & Flora International. It is a leading scientific journal of biodiversity conservation, conservation policy and sustainable use, with a particular interest in material that has the potential to improve conservation management and practice. The website, plays a vital role in the journal s capacity-building work. Amongst the site s many attributes is a compendium of sources of free software for researchers and details of how to access Oryx at reduced rates or for free in developing countries. The website also includes extracts from Oryx issues 10, 25 and 50 years ago, and a gallery of research photographs that provide a fascinating insight into the places, species and people described in the journal. The Rhino Resource Center posted this PDF in June We are grateful for the permission.

2 22 Society for the Preservation of the Fauna of the Empire steps

3 Game Wardens

4 24 Society for the Preservation of the Fauna of the Empire very difficult job to catch the middleman. For instance,

5 Game Wardens of Kenya 25 tion, about fifteen years ago Elephant became so plentiful in Uganda that they overflowed their usual districts, and became a menace to native cultivation. Various expedients were tried for keeping them in check, and finally licences for twenty-five Elephants were issued to approved European hunters. This was all right in theory, but in practice the hunters naturally went far afield looking for Elephant with the best ivory. This meant that peaceful herds, far away from native cultivation, were suddenly stirred up and overflowed all over the Protectorate. The result of this was that the present Elephant Control Scheme was brought into being. Nowadays practically all Elephant hunting is done by Government Rangers, who are helped by native assistants. They hold a line covering the general cultivated areas of Uganda and they shoot Elephants that attempt to break through it. But they leave all those that stay peacefully in their forest homes severely alone. Under this scheme a very large number of Elephants are annually very skilfully killed by the Government Rangers. Sometimes people say it is wrong that a Government should kill so many of these fine animals, but to my mind there is no greater mistake than trying to preserve game in districts where it conflicts with economic development. If game preservation is to be successful, it must be supported by public opinion. Now the public are not going to be enthusiastic supporters of a Game Preservation Policy if its crops are being devoured by Elephant or Zebra. Public opinion in Kenya has improved enormously in the last ten years, thanks largely to Captain Ritchie, the Game Warden there. The result of this is that we have been able to pass very strict game laws and have got sympathetic help in enforcing them. I hope, too, that in time we shall get a staff sufficient to do the job properly, and that the Game Wardens of Africa, who are doing such good work, will get a real chance. The wild life of to-day is not wholly ours to dispose of as we please : it has been given us in trust. We must account for it to those who come after us and who will audit our records.
