This new debate series is to encourage discussion around the ‘’Big Five’ wildlife economy activities which have been defined by the SOWC’s Research Department. The five activities are ecotourism, hunting and fishing, the carbon market, non-timber forest products and wildlife ranching. The overall aim of the research department is to gather data and information to illustrate the value of wildlife to economies and through this to encourage investment in this important economic asset.
