dc.descriptionWhat can we learn from the now hundreds of translocation programs from around the globe? That’s what we set out to discover in this review of 293 case studies reported in the Global Re-introduction Perspectives Series published by IUCN’s Conservation Translocation Specialist Group. We evaluated the difficulties encountered in these programs and found that although lack of funding, monitoring challenges and habitat quality all figured prominently, the most pervasive problems facing animal translocations involved animal behavior. This interesting revelation reinforces what we here at SDZG already know: understanding individual animals and preparing them for a new life at a new location are of the utmost importance. The most common problem encountered involves dispersal away from the release site, which is why we and other practitioners have been developing ways to anchor animals to the release site. These and other lessons provide guidance for improving future wildlife translocations.
