Wildlife Conservation and Tropical Timber Certification Report
This report provides an overview of timber certification, summarises published evidence of wildlife management in certified tropical timber production forests and analyses constraints for achieving sustainable wildlife management.
Timber certification is a market-based instrument for promoting sustainable forest management, including wildlife management. Millions of hectares of tropical timber production forests have been certified yet little is known about improvements in wildlife management in these forests and the degree to which certification can ensure sustainable wildlife management. ZSL’s Wildlife Wood Project aims to develop indicators for the objective assessment of wildlife management activities that can be integrated into existing certification standards.
