Support given to priority research projects

Ezamvelo KZN Wildlife maintains a list of priority research needs and will provide additional support to researchers who chose to tackle these projects. This may include use of research facilities and accommodation, free access to protected areas, logistical support (including in some cases field rangers or assistants), and access to long term data sets as well as providing letters of support for funding applications.

Research Priorities

Ezamvelo KZN Wildlife maintains a list of priority research projects under a series of themes. In addition each protected area develops and maintains a list of research priorities based on an assessment of information gaps in relation to making management decisions. As these priority lists become available in digital format they will be added to the web site; for protected areas where lists are not available on the web site please contact the relevant Manager Ecological Advice for the Protected Area concerned.

The lists of priority research topics are listed below:

  • Research Priorities List for the Protected areas North West Region
  • Research Priorities List for the Protected areas South West Region
  • Global priorities for protected area research
