Abstract
  • Legislated wilderness, first created in the United States with the Wilderness Act of 1964, is being more widely established internationally. The Mavuradonha Wilderness Area in Zimbabwe is the first wilderness set up to be managed by the local community. Because of the importance of both conservation and rural development goals in this context, community use of the wilderness is a contentious issue in the development of a management strategy. The purpose of this study is to estimate the impacts of community use of the area. Measurements of several environmental variables were taken along random transects and cattle trails extending into the wilderness. Results indicate that a buffer zone of generally one kilometer is being lightly impacted, and the author suggests that allowing the community continued access to resources and cattle grazing in the area will result in little environmental impact and much local support of the wilderness.
