Koedoe, the official journal of the South African National Parks (SANParks), furthers the understanding of complex social-ecological systems, protected areas and conservation in general, in order to improve human ability to sustainably manage natural resources. The journal defines key practices that will ensure biodiversity in protected areas and with natural resources that are faced with pressure from growing human populations and the interaction with global environmental changes. The journal fosters scientific advances in evidence-based policy and management approaches to assist with context-specific actual management challenges.
Emphasis is on all aspects that promote and contribute to the scientific (biological) and environmental (ecological and biodiversity) conservation practices of Africa. This includes, amongst others:

  • conservation movement, seeking to protect plants, animals and their habitats
  • conservation ethic of resource use, allocation, exploration, and protection
  • habitat conservation
  • water conservation
  • wildlife management, multidisciplinary practices, including conservation of species and their habitats
  • marine conservation, the protection of ecosystems in oceans and seas
  • soil conservation
  • conservation authority
This journal provides novel, stimulating and baseline scientific information on all forms of protected areas, from large state national parks to small regional and local game and nature reserves, as well as from cultural and environmental heritage areas to private conservation areas.
