The conflict between increasing human population and biodiversity conservation is one of the IUCN s key threatening processes. Conservation planning has received a great deal of coverage and research as a way of conserving biodiversity yet, while theoretically successful, it has never been tested. Simple lines on maps to illustrate conservation areas are unlikely to be successful in the light of human encroachment. It may be that some form of overt display is necessary to ensure the protection of reserves. This may be signage, presence of guards/rangers or physical fencing structures.
The need for some form of barrier goes beyond restricting human access. The megafauna of Africa pose a genuine threat to human survival. In southern Africa, fences keep animals in and protect the abutting human population. Elsewhere, fencing is not considered important or viable. Where poverty is rife, it won t take much to tip the balance from beneficial conservation areas to troublesome repositories of crop-raiders, diseases and killers.
Conversely, in New Zealand fences are used to keep animals out. Introduced species have decimated New Zealand s endemic birds, reptiles and invertebrates, and several sites have been entirely encapsulated in mouse-proof fencing to ensure their protection. Australia faces the same problems as New Zealand, however surrounds its national parks with cattle fences. Foxes and cats are free to enter and leave at will, resulting in rapid recolonisation following poisoning campaigns. How long will these poison campaigns work before tolerance, aversion or resistance evolves in the introduced predator populations?
Poland s Bialowieza Primeval Forest conserves the last remnants of the forests that once covered much of Europe. Yet this forest is only 500 km2 and keystone species, such as bison, wolves and lynx, are restricted to it. Surrounding the forest is cleared agricultural land and persecuting humans that act as a metaphorical fence .
Clearly fencing is not the ideal solution. Other areas are implementing ancient animal husbandry practices or natural barriers of distasteful crops. How will global climate change affect conservation planning and the positioning of fences?

Debt-free, a comfortable home, a good life, independence. Those are things we all wish for. Working for a salary isn't likely to get them for us, though, since our wages don't keep up with inflation, much less get us ahead of the curve. The only way to enjoy the life we want is to be able to set our own income and the only way to do that is to operate our own successful business. The Shoestring Manual help you do just that. Instead of a business plan, the Shoestring Manual provides a game plan. Laid out in a simple, easy to understand format, it is a "follow the steps" type of instruction. It begins by guiding you to choose the best business for your skills and talents and ends with a client paying you. All you do is fill in the blanks one at a time to create a small business that works. Think about your life and what you want for yourself, your wife, and your children. If things don't look promising today, what's tomorrow likely to be? One sure thing is that if you keep doing what you're doing, you'll keep getting what you're getting. To change your future, you have to change your present.
