Dear Ian,
As I was sort stuff ready to tae 'with me I c a rqss your
letter dated 9th January aj realized that had never replied. Do please
accept my apologies. I brought it with me o0 this trip as a priority
letter to write.
I am out on my own this time and feel much happier about this. Riney
is staying behind in Switzeralnd to work up the Handbook, I am glad that
you turned his list visit to such good See but note that he has served his
purpose and that you do not wish a repeat performance. I don't blame you.
With such a challenging project which we have I am loathe to say this but
will be glad when the end of the year comes and the project ends, at least
insofaras present arrangements are concerned and we will go our own ways.
I will be interested to see what he does as I certainly am quite convinced
that he will never work in a team for long. I reckon I am a fairly
easy going bloke but I just can't get on with him at all and I am
wondering whether he could really get on with anyone with whom he was
obliged to associate closely. He is not terribly popular in SR. So be it,
its a pity as he is very able in so many ways and works very hard.
I have no further information re heat treatment of 'dried meat. I
left this with Phil Glover and Dr Russell and although I have written once
or twice, I have no information to date. This is a pity as, if the answer
is not known, I would have though that the laboratory side of things would
not be too difficult. It would certainly be a good thing if this point
could be sorted out in time for the IUCN general assembly due to be held
in Nairobi in September this year. I shall keep nagging away at it
I was surprised to note the contents of your first para. I would have
thought that Ian would be watching Galana like a hawk as, in my opinion,
there simply cannot be too much interest, assistance and effort of all kinds
put into schemes of this kind. Their success or otherwise will be important
factoOs for moulding the furtnwe of wildlife irL. Africa. I agree with you
that other than in very special cases private enterprise is the answer; this
has been proved time and time again. I would be very interested in anyb
developemnts in the direction you indicate. The rather specialized game
product is a rather particular type of egg just now and the cattle egg would
logically make the basket more secure. I know full well what you mean by
the ultra purist conservationist. When discussing wildlife in general with
a certain gentleman for whom I have the geratest respect and admiration, a
few weeks ago he said, 'the, trouble with FAO is that it is really only
concerned with man's belly; our aims are rather higher than this.' I
pointed out to him that I was convinced that one of the main ways of achievin
g these lofty aims probably was via man's belly and in fact without this
approach we may remain in the realm of idealism instead of realism and lose

many faults but I believe his heart is in the right place and he has done much
good work. Will you be attending the IUCN General Assembly in September next? T hope
so as I would certainly value daredt contact with you agamn.

is anything in which you ma~y feel I may be of assistance. I am giving a public
showing of a series of colour slides I have brought with me. Utilization will feature
and will include your set-up of which J have several good ones.

Dear Ian, \ / / "'
awaited~~t me on myreurnfogtehore
\. : ...**'
It was very good of you indeed to havewitten to me at length. Yor letter
awaited me on my return from the former French Congo las W/Eo
First of all do please let me know your leave address in Nairobi as we must
at least meet for a good talk whilst the General Assembly is on. As a farmer I am
afavid I find that few of the punditry group with which I am mainly in contact have
their feet anywhere near the ground in any respect. Some manage one leg, but then
they/mi/ are often diverted by having the other one cocked up like a dog having a
leak. Your letter clearly indicates that our approach is basically the same and thus
whilst I do not believe there is an easy royal road towards anything but small
scale game utilization, at present, a constant exchange ibf ideas between people who
have adequate knowledge of all aspects is profitable. I comment on the points you
raise seriatim.
Your second para. I quite agree with the point you mkke. Private enterprise still
operates in a large scale in West Africa where political instability is as great as
ever, or even more so. It is not very difficult to obtain Govt. participation in
any worth while project and once security is achieved, the worst hurdle is passed. I
met the managing director of a large French cattle enterprise with expanding interests
in Gabon and the Fr.Congo the other day. They introduced the N Dama breed into these
areas from the Ivory Coast some years ago and have now built up a herd of over 7,00O
in the Congo alone. They have been compelled to allow Govt. to participate on a sort
of sleeping partner basis but they are fairly happy about the way things are shaping
and are at least able to plan on a long term basis. Your answer might be- that's all
right for a country with a Govt.
What is the land tenure situation in the aeea you mention? I am a bit nervous
about development of permanent water points unless these can be carefully regulated.
Whilst this is possible with boreholes for any animals, one cannot control wild animals
around dams. X 20 acre/domestic livestock unit land cannot stand much dvc in the
way of water development cost s. But satisfy ecological requirements and I feel it
will stretch your economicalmost to breaking point. At any rate it would need careful
investigation. Afa,
With the experience of many groundnut I (actual and type) gxxiH schemes
both for crops and livestock, I would certainly support your view that, with the
rainfall you indicate, supplementary irrigation would be a prerequisite for crop
husbandry and even then, success would depend on many other factors. I was delighted
to find that an area I looked at in the French Congo in 1951, with high rainfall (60"),
but poor soils, is derived savanna, carried a groundnut scheme, involving crops and
livestock; It started in 194.9 and folded up in 1955. You can believe it or not but
this huge area which is about 200 miles by 100 is almost devoid of people and if we
proposed game utilization, there would be no opposition! Its an interesting problem
as savanna has developed within high forest and high forest still exists in wide
belts to the north and south. The only game spp. are those of forest and hence
they are not getting on too well. But we might introduce if we can find something i
suitable.
Turning to meat, you say that existing game stocks could produce -- million lb
usable meat p.a. This would amount roughly to about 1- million lb on the hoof or a
biomass$of 4001b/sq.mile. You then mention a figure for, presumably, part of the aeea
at 20 acres /beast. Assuming that your average beast liveweight is 5001b, the cattle
biomass would amount to 16,0001b /sgomile. How do you account for these differences
in estimate?Either actual game stocks -re well bK1=xsemiim&t above your estimate or
populations are ,in fact, low and if so why. The point is that land which can carry
16,000 lb/sq.mile of cattle, with water, can carry 2 to 5 times that amount of game
with/ ehe spp. you have- of that I am certain. Again, 1 OOO from 300pso milgs is,
about bd. /acre You would certainly be safe on That estimate even on I" rana
would say. On the other hand, assuming that a beast takes 5 years to mature, your





2.
estimate for cattle use would produce 4/- per cacre, that is assuming that a mature
bullock is worth about 20.

Your point re infant mortality of elephant is interesting- nice biological control
for present conditions. There would be a case for water devt. for elephant, which can
travel so far.
I agree that there is a world market for protein, even as there is an even greater
demand. The limiting ft factors are a) lack of purchasing power b) traditional tastes
which do not change easily or qic ly. TXzisaxexpB2a iiztaxszE c) religious taboos
and d) disease. I tackled Neil Reid of FAO again only 10 days ago and he still seems
adamant that meat produced in Africa should be used in Africa and that this process
will evolve gradually on a village industry basis. This will in turn set up V slow
chain reaction sociological changes which will demand higher standard of living etc etc.
I can agree with him only so far. As a vet, of course, he is biased more towards
sickness of animal rather than land. My contention is that Africa other than
locallyBai^ over vaste area o gpelessly overloaded with protein or a vraiety
of reasons is not used .This in itself is bad enough iu w s even worse is that in
the process of subsidized, uncontrolled or other build up of animal populations (with
game, often as a result of other land-use)land is depleted beyond repair. In such
circumstances, off-loading meat wherever a market exists can only be right,
provided that at least revenue or part thereof returns to the source of supply in
Thich form it can be converted to raise living standards by any means deemed suitable.
I keep on pointing this out to FAO and other organizations including UNICEF, in
which organisation my brother holds a key post. He spends much of his time in India
and other Asian countries. Do write to him in a personal capacity if you wish; his
address is R.A.Hill,giik Apto3e, 20, Beekman Place, New York 22. NY. USAPeople
can do nothin- without ammunition and though he has indicated he can little at present
one never knows. iiost of the protein subsidies dished out to these countries is
factory prAared in count-ies like the US where protein surpluses occur. I am sure
we have got to aim at an exportable product which can compete with anything else
and I don't think that canning is the answer as it is expensive and difficult to
achieve inder field conditions. Some other sterilising process must be found and
I return to sun dryin- + heat treatment, In spite of repeated enquiries I have been
unable to obtain any advice or information on this matter. I might have a go at
Nestles along the lake here in the next few weeks and see if I can get anything out
of them or if not, try to get them to/ conduct some tests
I must awaybnow and lookmforward to receiving further comments from you in
due course. Please excuse my bad typing. I like to do letters such as this myself-
there are too many snoppers around here.' With kind regards to C ristine & yourself
and- keep smiling and battling. I spent the last ASP trip in West Africa on my
own and it was rather more pleasant.

yours ever,

NAKURU,

Dear Ian,
Thank you very much for your letter of 6th October. We
recently returned from a long safari and I am sorry that you
have waited so long for an answer.
The position about the job I mentioned to you is that I
have been asked to look around for suitable people who might
be able to take up posts on the staff at iiweka and to make a
preliminary approach to them. We are still waiting to know
whether funds can be found to pay such people but I think it
likely that they can. I am not yet in a position to offer
you a post here but can only try to find out from you what the
chances are of your being available and on that basis send your
S name in1the people who would probably finance the post (an
American foundation or the U.N. Special Fund perhaps).
As regards the salary, nothing can be decided about that yet.
It would depend to a great extent on the age, experience, and
qualifications of the candidate and would presumably be related
to his present salary, but would include a reasonable extra
sum for inducement. If I were to make a guess a starting salary
for someone in your position it would be of the order of 1200 -
1500.
It is not essential for you to make a positive reply yet.
Indeed, you could not be expected to give one on the very slender
information I have given you. However, It would help me if
I could have your reactions to my suggestion of a Kb salary
level and tell me what you are now getting. I would also need
to know your age, experience in the Kenya Game Department, any
academic qualifications, and anything else which you think would
be helpful. This would be treated as confidential but it would
help mB to guide me in my recommendations to the Aiericans. If
your st salary is low now (i.e. local terms) I would certainly







want to see you get more.


Please give my regards to your wife. I have very pleasant
memories of my short visit to you on the Galana Risrt.


Yours sincerely,




Hugh Lamprey. ..

Dear Sir,

SMany thinks for your letter Oof the 3rd.Oct. Please forgive
me for not answering immediately, out things have been very busy
S these past weeks with Safaris.

Regarding your offer for for animal, heads,feet, aid head
skins. I will be only too willing to purchase any froai you if
they are as you state, salted very well and also shade dried.
I an always getting asked for head/skins etc., so if you could
send me a few samples, I could then give you an offer. You will
appreciate that it is difficult for me to estimates unless I do
see the condition of the hide, as well as the way that they have
been cut etc., you must realise that I would only require. them
for mounting, therefore, the lips, and ears, must be skinned out
very well.
Should you ever be down in iai:obi, maybe you could ring me
up, and then we could talk about things.
A Awaiting your reply at your convenience, I am,

Yours faithfully,

RE: BONES

Immediately on my return from the Voi Show I contacted
the railway authorities regarding rates of freight for transport
of bones between Mariakani and Athi River. They quote Shs.57/-
per ton, provided the bones are despatched in truck loads (Class
9).

As mentioned to you we can offer Shs.180/- per ton for
the bones, delivered to Athi River, where they can be processed
by the mobile plant.

You stated you knew of several contractors willing
to transport the bones from the Game Reserve to Mariakani.
Without knowing their charges it is impossible to estimate how
much the collectors would be paid, and therefore before applying
to the Game Department for permission, I should appreciate if
you could obtain quotations.

May I say that I had the opportunity of discussing
your suggestion with the Provincial Commissioner, Coast Province,
during the Show, and. he assured me of his support.

As soon as I hear from you I will make the official
application to the Game Warden, Nairobi.

The Game Warden of the Coast Province of Kenya
is instituting game management schemes in his area whereby
tribes in certain parts will be allowed to hunt a quota
of game animals. These will produce a supply of game meat
for which he wants to find a market and has suggested that
the Chagga might be interested. I have made enquiries
locally and it appears that the Chagga might be interested
in buying the meat of the softer-skinned animals for a low
price. Before going any further with this scheme I write
to ask whether you would approve of the sale of such game
meat in.oshi District in accordancd with section 56 of
Cap.502/ The Game Warden of the Cos Province estimates
that he will be able to deliver a lorry-load of meat each
week into this District. Most of the meat would be dried
but a small proportion of it would be fresh. I write to
ask, therefore, for your views and recommendations on
this matter.

Dear Sir,

Dried Meat

SWe have for acknowledgment your letter of 8th
July and we thank you for giving us details of your
@ most interesting Game Management Scheme.

In the past we have had unfortunate experience
in handling dried meat, and it is now a matter of
policy that we do not stock this in our Branches, but
this does not preclude our placing orders for direct
supply to our Members.

In the first place we should like to see an
analysis of the dried meat which, we note, is mainly
elephant, and a quotation on a f.o.r. Mombasa basis
detailing the weight per bag. Provided the analysis
is suitable and the price competitive we should then
be pleased to advertise this and place orders with you
-" on receipt of fimnn orders from farmers.

*With regard to the stockfeed aspect of your
Scheme there are, as you probably know, certain diffi-
culties insofar as we, not unnaturally, will only sell
bonemeal or meatmeal provided it has a guaranteed protein
content which is acceptable to the consumer, and the
product must, of course, be doubly sterilised and guar-
anteed free from Anthrax, otlthough we are unsure
whether this would apply to elephant meat and bonemeal.

Re: Elephant hair Bracelets.

Your esteemed name has been introduced to us by Mr. Ikram Hassan who has
been very friendly with us and our brother Mr. Maru of Barclays bank Mombasa.

We want elephant hair bracelets for our shop which is situated on
Sheikh Juhdani Rbad. There are enquiries from tourists who visit our shop
and ask for elephant hair bracelets which is a Mombasa Souvenir.

We shall be glad if you will send us your pricelist together with a sample
of the same. If your price is favourable we shall be your permanent customer
to buy bracelets from you in wholesale quantity.
Mr. Ikram Hassan, has advised that we shall get the necessary permit from
you for bracelets which we shall bv from you and as such we shall be glad to
receive the same from o' in order to be safe and within the law.

Thanl-in7 you and in anticipation of an early reply,


We are,

I am afraid that I am corresponding with the

his address. ...-

/ I have been making some rather extensive

( the enclosed reply is a little to the ppint, you will,
I think, appreciate that the Institute would not in any
way wish to undertake some sort of research work or
project which it could not successfully carry out.

Perhaps, therefore, you would be kind enough
to send a copy of this communication to Mr. Parker,and
ask him to let me have a fairly full reply to it. (I
enclose an extra copy for your own personal retention).

Please forgive me if this seems to have taken
some time to do, but I know that you will appreciate
that I want to be as helpful as possible from the

Dear Mr. Horsham,
x x x x

I think this is primarily a matter of economics and
I consider the Game Warden should do some more thinking on
his problem. Thus, he must know -
1. Whether elephant meat is, or is not, eaten in Kenya.

2. Who sells it.
5. Who buys it, and
4. Whether there is a ready market for it, fresh or dried,
I(like Biltong in South Africa).

The question of handling the meat, fresh or dried, chilled
or frozen, is linked to the appeal, flavour and palatability, and
the economics of marketing, rather than to a page of laboratory
results giving the water content of selected cuts of the chilled
meat, the protein-nitrogen and total-fat content, as percentage
of the weight and dried weight, compared with similar values for
beef and mutton.

The question of how it compares as a food is to be answered
by existing practice; for even if the Itoratory values showed
results comparable to beef or mutton (and I have no reason to
believe the results will be very different), a certificate to
this effect from the Institute would not persuade people in Kenya
to eat elephant meat, or use elephant fat, if it had a flavour
they did not care for. Whale meat in this country is a strict
parallel
If, after thinking again, the Game Warden wishes the tests
made, we would require to have one-pound samples of sarlected cuts,
delivered by air-freight, chilled, so as to give reasonably accurate
results comparable wich similar llues for meat obtained fresh in
this country.
/ As regards the glands, Messrs. Burroughs Wellcome & Co.,
Euston Road, London, N.W.l. would, I believe, be interested in
the pancreas, Messrs. Evans Medical Ltd., Ruislip, Middlesex,
Should be interested in the thyroid, and each of these firms would,
if written to, supply instructions :-s to how the glands were to be
delivered from the moment the animal was sacrificed, while Dr.
P.J. Randle, Department of Biochemistry, University of Cpmbridge,
would no doubt be interested in the pituitary gland.

*Dear Peter,
Thank you for yr y interesting letter.

It seems to me that some useful purpose might be served by employ-
ing elephant glands in some way or another, although at the moment I
find it rather difficult to suggest anything myself.

I am glad you have written to Professor Amgroso as he might well
have a bright idea about this. The other two people who might be
interested in this are Sir Solly Zukerman, who is not only an endocrin-
ologist but also the Secretary of the Zoo, and Dr. A. S. Parkes and I
will mention this matter to them in due course.

Another line which might be worth exploring is the various
,/ Pharmaceutical firms that make hormone extracts. I lave friends in

them also in due course.

Dear lan,
Thank you very in for your letter.l didn't know whatner I
had your address right or not,however it found you which is the main
thing.

I have beren thinking this whole thing overhand have come to
the conclusion the best thing I can do is come down and see you, on the
spot and work out the best and most economic way of collecting and
shelling the nuts on the spot .Once you have .ut the nuts on the rail
at Voi or Mac.Road the cost to Solai will be in the region of ./j
a bag.That means that landed at Solai they would cost me .o 16/) .I
know the Asian who is supplying me at the moment is getting them from
the Turkana at 7/.- a bs shelled,he then charges me lo/- abag to transport
them 190 miles on his lorry, 170 miles of which he does -tywaz em.ty.

As far as I can see there are two alternatives 3 You sell
them to us unshelled or 2) We send you down a set of saw machines
and you shell and slice them in which case we could a ord to pay you
somewhere in the region of -u/- a oa7.The sliceing in itself is not a
big job.But as the ratio id a.-roxarr-itely bags of nuts to 1 bag of
slices the saving in transpooA would be considerable.


I am free to come down more or less any time in the next

Dear Ian,

I I realise that there has been a long delay between my departure aid
this letter. However, I had to wait a long time for these maps to
be sent from Uncle Sam, it seems that the stock of these seldom or-
dered maps is kept in the Panama Canal Zone. Anyway, here they are
and I see that they are really as erroneous and incomplete as some
of the others I have seen.

Last week I saw our congressman from this district and will have to
make arrangements to go to Washington to have a long enough visit
with him to get any progress made in regard to the effort to import
some of your African animals to this country.

I am very serious about this and feel that one of the primary ways
in which they can be preserved is through importing them into this
country and putting some of them in some of our National Parks for
the purpose of exhibiting them to the public. Our Congressman is
the Chairman pf the House of Rerresentatives Committee on National
Parks and is in a position to help a great deal. One of the largest
and most suitable parks in the country from the standpoint of ter-
I rain, climate, vegetation, and remoteness is in his district and is
the Big Bend Park. This place would be perfect for almost all of the
plainsgame. I feel that they would breed and live under almost the
same conditions that they enjoy over there when they are released
in this park, which covers thousands of square milecof the Big Bend
country.

Day before yesterday I had a letter from the president of the Shikar
Safari Club who told me that he and a group of Californians have the
approval of the Department of Agriculture to set up a game refuge
for animals from Africa out there. I am going to put him in touch
with you if you think it will be feasible for you and the Game De-
partment to set up a program of capturing and shipping some qfthese
animals to us.

Ian, it was wonderful for me to have the opportunity of meeting and
being with you and Chris. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay on the Galana
with you. I know that your work is often frustrating and I admire
and appreciate your pluck in staying with it. Perhaps if we can set
up this scheme to buy some of your animals from you, it can become
more rewarding for you. I would appreciate hearing from you in

regard to the above and I hope that you will be able to get the
Game Department to sanction a program such as this.

Please give Chris my regards and also little Susan.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Sincerely,


Ed

SWHY 5,000 ELEPHANTS MAY BE SLAUGHTERED
A A 'rLTrE of growing worry over
IA Africa's vanishing wildlife, game
* wardens in Kenya fear they may have
to shoot 5,000 elephants. This would be
the biggest such slaughter ever.
The reason, as reported by NBC cor-
respondent George Clay in a broad-
cast from Nairobi: An aerial count in
Southeast Kenya tallied 15,000 ele-
phants in 13,000 square miles-5,000
more than the area can support.
Each elephant. Mr. Clay pointed
out, eats a fifth of a ton of vegetation a '
day. If left alone, the 15,000 elephants '.'%t
will have eaten all the forage in the
area within a year. Then, not only the 9
elephants but other game will starve.
Came conservationists met in Nairo-
bi on September 14 to seek an alterna-
tive to slaughter, which they regard as
particularly tragic in light of predic-
tions the free-roaming African elephant KENYA ELEPHANT-There are 5,0
may disappear in a few decades, denude thenat#Pqsparks of vege


00 too many, and their appetites threaten to
station, starve both elephants and other animals

Just a line to let you know I have discovered a
potential market for elephant biltong. The Greyhound Racing
Association kennels just north of London have about 500 dogs,
each of which consumes --lb meat per day, cooked, for 5 days
a week. At present they are feeding third quality whale meat,
which is costing them 1/2-d per lb. I discussed the elephant
idea with the veterinary surgeon in charge, Col. Coulden, and
he was keen to try a sample. I have also checked up on import
restrictions; there are none as far as I can see that ap.:ly to
elephant meat.

If you are interested, 1 suggest that you quote Coulden
a price per ton, and offer to send 100 lbs free, the G.R.A. to
pay freight charges they might pay air fare. You could
obviously compete very favourably on the above costings. The
address is: y

Dear Ian:

Some little time ago I was in California and visited with the
man about whom I told you earlier. He told me that he had met
lan Grimwood in Seattle, Washington when they were there to-
gether for a world conference of some sort conderning game.
*I believe that it would be profitable for you to mention this
to Grimwood with the end in view of exporting some of your
rarer animals to Mr. Maurice A. Machris, 550 South Flower, Los
Angeles 17, California. I have a letter from him concerning
the Arabian Oryx in which he took a great interest and appa-
rently discussed at length with Grimwood.

I heard some time ago from John Lawrence telling me of his
various trips to your part of the country recently. Today I
talked with Bobby Burns, he is apparently going to come over
there again in the near future to hunt with John again. You
must right at this time have some of my friends from this
part of the country there near ou Bill and Anne
Meeker and Bobby Fre a o Winninger. -

/Yxou will find aclipping from one of our most popular national
f magazines enclosed. It is not hard for me to guess where the l
t information comes from nor who.gathered it. Is the little ? ? I
plane still in good shppe? / 'c,, -- .,-L .-........ o -w-sy /

My plans o raise some of your game are still ra elous
since it appears that there is a great deal of red tape to be
cut along the way to getting approval to import wild animals.

Give my very best to Chris and little Susan. Let me hear from
you when you have time to write.

Sincerely,

Dear Ian,

Many thanks for your helpful letter of July 31st. I'm
writing to Grzimek and Glover as you suggest. I suspect I-K.now
who has been maligning the game ranchers. Hope Grzimek will be
able to tell where he got his information from. If anything is dn
writing we may be getting somewhere.
The shooting is going ahead with the Department of National
Parks and Wild Life Mgt. doing the dirty work. There is some
little hope that they may be able to introduce a little sanity
in spite of the pressures that will be put on them. Probably the;:
only assistance possible now will be moral support for the "Game"
Dept. to act for modifications in plans, and pressure that may even-
tually lead to abandonment of this method. The selected species
will be (they hope) exterminated over an area of 4,000 square miles.

* The Vets have been hammering me and W.U.S. but in spite of
this, we are now back in operation and should, we hope, be able to
accumulate a small financial backlog. Hope it will be sufficient
to weather their next attack. There is vi tunally no demand for
consultants here; at least not for the only people who can do the work
You might contact people in this country -- it is quite possible
that you could find consulting work here, and possibly in S. Africa
as well. At present we are solely a game ranching company. I'll
enclose a couple of things that may interest you. The fact that
we game ranch probably prevents some cansulting--I'm not sure this
is so however.
Peter Johnstone has retired as a director but is a major
share holder. Right now he is busy getting his leg operated on -
a job that has needed doing for 3 or 4 years now.

Your hippo data are darn interesting -- good job

c/o 4 H. Mowat, Esq., F.R.C.S.E.,
NAKURU, Kenya /

Dear lan,

Many thanks indeed for your most interesting letter
of the 8th of June 1964, Your comments on the fate of the
Galana area are most interesting. It seems Griiwood has
found it difficult to change. As you know, somewhat similar
troubles shifted him out of N. Rhodesia. Where will he go
next?

I hope you, your wife, and Alistair Graham are able
to make a go of the wildlife research and management in
East Africa. It will be purely a case of people recognizing
the need for your services. Will you do just consulting type
work or are you actually planning to game ranch for people?
I'll send you what I can under separate cover. Forget the
costs and postage routine. I'll also try to give you a list
of references that may be useful and will include it with
this letter.,

The Veterinary people together with A least the
Secretary for Agriculture here are using the spectre of
tsetse fly advance to achieve certain ends. At the February
14th meeting of the Game Ranchers Association on Buffalo
Range, the Director of Veterinary Services, Mr. T. Lees May
stated the Veterinary Department a proposals for control of
tsetse fly when asked about the rumours that were flying
about. He shocked almost all of us with his statements,
including his statement that they proposed to exterminate
all bushbuck, warthog, kudu, bush pig, elephant and buffalo
from the Gbna-re-Zhou game reserve, and the same over vast
stretches, of Southern Rhodesia. The Game Ranchers Association
combatted this and I, as secretary, did much of the work.
The Vets and related Agriculture people, including almost
certainly the Sect'y for Agriculture, Charles E. Murray, have
adopted a policy of getting me personally and of getting
the game ranchers too, but especially the company of which
I am a director. Their approach has been and continues to be
one of discrediting us as wanton slaughterers for private
profit. They also make things especially difficult for my
company in other ways.

I had not realized that they had got quite as far
afield as Kenya, but it does not surprise.me. It would be
most useful if we could learn how the rumours you mention
arrived in Kenya.
Since contacting people overseas on behalf of the
Game Ranchers Association (I agreed with this approach under
the circumstances) I have been taken to task by several elected
members of government and by the new Secty for Lan& and






Natural Resources. Their approach is that this sullys the
image of S. Rhodesia and that it is none of their business
anyway although that latter is implied and not said. They
have made promises of opposition to unreasonable slaughter
too, which is good of them. We have been waiting for some
sort of clear statement or evidence of what is going to be
done before calling for further help. The time is probably
very near. They have promised to contact us before going
ahead and so far have not done so.

The most we have said is that if it can be clearly
shown to our satisfaction that game shooting corridors of
reasonable width and length must be established to protect
existing enterprises, we will back them in doing this.
This I think is a reasonable approach. However, a reasonable
approach is the last thing they appear to want, because their
true aims seem to have little or nothing to do with tsetse
fly as far as I can make out. We have never said that we
recommend a policy of wild life extermination as a method
of tsetse control. By the way, the E. Afrixan Wildflie foc,
wouldn't support us because of the political implications.

Africa has some very unlovely personalities to
balance with the nice ones. Sometimes I think the unlovely
ones are the most common. Certainly most will put up with
almost anything to avoid a scrap for a good cause when they
see that they may personally loose in the process. In a
way I suppose that is just good sense, but it surely doesn't
favor good government and good conservation. At the moment
we are "hanging tough" to see what will actually happen.
-The game people are supposed to do the shooting which will
almost certainly go ahead. In a public statement Dr. Cockbill
the other night, said they would shoot in an area of 4,000
square miles. I doubt that we will consider these to be of
"reasonable width and length".

If you can find out how those rumours got going
in Kenya I'd be very much obliged.

Hope all will go well for you. Please give our
regards to your wife.

Sincerely yours,




Archie S. Mossman

I. recommend strip counts (in a vehicle, on a bicycle,
on foot, on horseback or some other) for brushy country.
In bush country, a standard predetermined strip width is
unrealistic in my estimation. All animals of the species
are not seen within the strip calculated for each species.
Hence, the arguments of Davis in Manual of Wildlife Investi-
gational Techniques are invalid. You can prove this to your
own satisfaction by comparing results with 1, 2, 3, 4, 5
observers per vehicle. You will find that the more observers,
assuming they don't talk, the more animals seen and the
higher the calculated population. We were also able to
check against a known population in similar conditions. The
method grossly underestimates small buck such as duiker and
steenbtck.

In your area, it would pay to attempt a standardization
of spoor counts against known populations or at least against
some other census techniques. Savory has been using spoor
counts in this country, I think with reasonable success where
only rough estimates are required. And this has always been
the case where he has used the technique.

In America, much reliance is put on percentage use
estimates of key forage species and game takes are related
to need for more or less grazing pressure. Past history of
known kills allows one to increase or decrease the kill as
necessary even though never actually knowing the numbers of
animals present. One would prefer to know the number of
animals, but it isn't really essential for relatively rough
management. Where one wants to take a maximum permissible
yield I'm afraid we'll have to know how many animals we'll
be dealing with.

Qalana Game k.anagement
P. 0. VOI
Kenya
Dear Ian:


It was a pleasure t receive'your letter of April 18 and I look
forward to seeing your rept-of the Galana Game a-'agement Scheme. I'll
try to answer your questions.
You comment that "development has virtually no limit--the greater '
(. the capital available the greater the development." I think this is the
place to start in my reply. There is a definite limit to the productivity
(Energy fixation rate) of any organism. Therefore, there is a definite
limit to the results that can be obtained from development. Secondly,
with domestic stock, the curve of production against capital investment
levels off at the top. In the case of net return on capital investment,
the curve crosses from profit to loss. To my knowledge, no such curves
have been worked out for game. All of his means that within a given geo-,
graphic unit, there are both actual and practical limits to what can be
accomplished with investment. a i . i
Secondly, the output of gami can almost certainly be increased with
"development." '.e know, for example, that on good range deer breed earlier
produce more twins, and rear them more successfully than on poor range.
One of the simplest, most useful, and most economical ways to achieve this
is to crop the. animals, maintaining an optimum popul-ition relative to their
environment generally and forage especially. In terms of the sigmoid
population increase curve, we try to maintain the populations near the top
of the exponential increase portion of the curve. There is every reason
to expect similar results with African game but I know of no data that can
be used to assess this. This is obviously one of the places where study
is urgently needed.

A simple "development" is to ensure surface water in formerly dry areas
where good forage exists. This has worked for game elsewhere and it should
also work in Africa. Again, adequate "before" and "after" data are not
available for any area in Africa, to my knowledge. Suggestive observations
however, have been made.
Cattle can supplement game. However, the increase in production is
dependent upon the extent to which they do not compete ecologically with
other species. For example, if they eat a plant species not eaten by
other animals they alone will convert it into meat. Approximately to th
extent they eat plant species eaten normally by other meat producers the
will decrease the meat production by the other species. Based upon the
efficiency with which the two use the species, one could choose between
them, everything else being equal. It never is.

In practical terms, it may be possible to increase sustained pro-
duction slightly in Africa by adding cattle sheep and goats to the existing
fauna. There are, however, some sociological relationships between man and
his domestic stock that make me very, very cautious about suggesting such
additions. T'.i with domestic stock causes overgrazing, erosion and environ-
mental degradation. This is almost an axiom. The exceptions are so rare
as to excite profound interest and surprise when they occur.

I don't think it is safe to expect an increase in production in Africa
comparable with what might possibly be done in temperate areas upon intro-
duction of new species. The reason lies in the theory that the African
fauna has had a long time to evolve. The number of large ungulate species
in Africa attest to the correctness of the notion that most niches for
ungulates are probably pretty well filled already.

I. S. C. Parker
Galana River Game management Scheme/
P. 0. Voi
Kenya
* Dear lan:
Thank you for your letter of .!ay 15 which arrived yesterday. I can
well understand your concern over the possibility that the cattle ranch-
ing efforts south of the Galana Game -'anagement Scheme will eventually
pose a threat to your area. At this distance I find it difficult to make
a really sensible judgment concerning the feasibility of introducing cattle
development into the game management scheme. I am especially impressed
with your comments that "all the dry weather watering points are now set-
tled and inaccessible to animals." You also mention that the area has
many potential large dam sites. If this is so, there must also be consid-
erable opportunity for construction of smaller dams.

When you took me on the drive up the Galana River and back, I was
favorably impressed with the abundance and variety of animals seen near
the river. In fact, as you know I was convinced that in consideration wit-h
the distribution of water the area was heavily over-stocked by herbivorous
animals. Development of water for game in Southern Rhodesia through the
use of small dams and windmills has proven quite successful when done
correctly. Since cattle require a far closer spacing of water holes than ,'t
game animals, it appears to me that the development of water would be a
necessity not only for increasing game but also for cattle. As I see it
then, the question becomes one of timing as well as financing. If it is
not necessary to show a large financial return from your area almost immed-
iately, then one has time for natural increase'the animal stocks to provide
the financial return. One means of increasing the carrying capacity for
big game animals that drink is to increase the amount of time the temporary
water remains in areas where good grazing occurs. In other words, with a
minimum outlay one can deepen and protect temporary water holes tha-oTghk
holding the animals on the wet season range for a longer period of time.
This can be expected to increase the game populations approximately in pr
portion to the increase oft-ie-e- thatqremain in areas of good grazing.

If the seasonal nature of game harvesting were to become a problem
the operation of a canning or meat processing plant, another solution
might be to establish a plant at Voi and buy cattle from Africans or fr
the European cattle scheme which you mentioned.

C I am still impressed with the problem of supplying meat to people
t4ee-relatively primitive economy. How does one supply animal protein
the people who,,reall y eed.(it when they are unable to pay in any mann
other than^Aservices 6r-art acts. The marketing problem certainly se
be our biggest worry, and it's a pity in many ways wh-en we have to th

overseas markets when the Africans themselves really need the meat. If
this problem could be solved, I doubt that you would have any trouble
obtaining all the development capital that you might wish for.
In estimating the time that will beavailable before financial results.
-w4t compete successfully with cattle, you will have to know approximately
how many animals you've got and about how fast you can expect them to
increase given favorable conditions. Therefore, I am very happy to hear
that you are :e'kin an attempt to census your area and I certainly look
forward to seeing the results you obtain.
I have been offered a lectureship at the University College of Rhodesia
and Nyasaland, and if all goes as expected we will be arriving there by
September 1. This means that I am going to be very busy between now and
Then, and I may not be able to get at an analysis of your Road Strip Count
data. If you have the population estimates worked out I certainly ought
to find time to look over your data and comment on them. It would be very
nice if we could find time to visit you again and look things over on the
ground, but I doubt that this will be possible. I understand that Dr. Lee
Talbot, University of California at Berkeley, will be coming to Africa for
two months, starting in June, to evaluate the many requests for game ranch-
ing funds that the United i'tions has received. I think it might be wise
for you to contact him directly if you can for any comments he may have.
I will thermofax your letters to me, and send them to him.

Please give my regards to your wife. How's the baby?

Yours sincerely,

Dear Mr. Parker,

I have now received from Roger Short the copy of your
Galana River Scheme Report, and have found it very interesting
and illuminating. I have also had the benefit of a long talk with
Roger. You have certainly had your share of difficulties, but
I do think encouraging progress has been made, and it is of course
particularly gratifying that proposals are now afoot to put the
scheme on a 100% commercial basis. I do hope this will succeed.

What I would like to ask you for are two things. First,
so that I may return your report to Roger for his own reference,
I wonder if you can send me a duplicate. I thought this should
not be any problem because I notice it has been stencilled.

The second thing is that for the trustees, purposes we
ought to have a shorter summary of progress made in the three-
year period, and which brings them right up to date with the
prospects for the future. This summary report should properly
come from the authorities responsible for the scheme, andwhoihlandle
the Foundation's grant, namely the Ministry of Tourism, Forests and
Will Life. A letter from Mr. Webster, as long ago as April 1962,
did in fact refer to a draft of such a report, which was to be sent on,
but so far as I can see this was never received. Would you feel able
to take this up with Major Grimnwood and/or the Ministry?

With all good wishes,

/Tours sincerely,

Dear Mr. Parker,

Thank you very much for your interesting letter, and I
am most grateful for the copy3bf your Galana River Game
Management Scheme report. I can now return the other one
to Roger Short.

I hadn't quite realized what your own personal position
was nowadays, but I db, of course, fully understand that it
might be difficult for you to extract, on our behalf, an
official report from the government authorities. Nonetheless,
we do, of course, have the right to insist that they produce
something, and if your own intervention fails, I shall not
hesitate to writ direct to the officials concerned.

Meanwhile, I do wish you every success with the new
venture, and again, I am very' grateful to you for bringing me
up to date.

With best wishes,

]Yours sincerely,

Dear Mr. Parker,

Unfortunately Dr. McAnuff is away ill at the
moment, so I am writing to thank you for your letter
of the 12th May. We hope that he may be back in the
office next week, when he will see your letter, and
will be able to consider what action should now be taken.
It is certainly very disappointing to hear that the scheme
has fallen through in this way.

Yours sincerely,

Dear Mr. Parker,

Many thanks for your letter, and for giving us the up-to-
date story on the Galana Scheme. It is certainly all rather sad.

I greatly welcome your advice, but I think in the first
instance I ought to do the more straight forward thing of requesting
an official report from the Ministry, and decide tWhat next to do
after that. I shall in any case be going out that way in August,
and might well take that opportunity of having some higher level
discussion if that seems sensible. I would hope also that I might
have the pleasure of meeting you, and on present plans I should
be in Nairobi over the 17th 19th August.

With best wishes,

further impediment to getting the Galana scheme established on
a permanent footing.

On present plans, I expect to be in and around Nairobi

to you later when the details of my itinerary have been finally

Dear Parker, \

O Further to my letter of 10th June, I can now confirm that
I expect to be in Nairobi between midday on Monday 17th August, and
Friday the Zlst. I shall have a number of things to do concerning
the University College and one or two other of our interests in the
area, but I do very much hope that we shall be able to meet and
discuss the Galana scheme situation. I just do not know if there is
any point in trying to see the area I have an uneasy feeling that
time will be at too much of a premium for that but we can just see
how things turn out.

I wonder if you would let me know what sort of times you
would have free during the period I have mentioned, and then I can
see how best to fit something in.

With best wishes,

Dear Parker, /

Jutt a further line o confirm try arrangements when I
reach Nairobi. I have just written to a Mr. Vivian infhe Ministry
of Natural Resources in Nairobi, suggesting I call to see him late
in the afternoon of Tuesday, 18th August, to discuss Galana, and
itwould of course be the greatest help to me if we were able to
have a chat beforehand. Would you be able to join me for lunch
that day at the New Stanley Hotel, where I shall be staying? In
view of postal delays at this end, and other contingencies it
might be best if you were to leave a message at the hotel.

Meanwhile the news from the Ministry of Natural Resources
is simply that "Major Grimwood will be submitting to us an official
report on the scheme".

I look forward to seeing you.

Yours sincerely,

Syou for your letter dated 23rd July.

at the New Stanley Hotel on the 18th of August. While you
are out here would it be at all possible for you to visit
the Galana area? If I were to fly you down in my own
aircraft we could go down and back in a day.
Let me know when you do receive your official
report on the Scheme, it will be worth celebrating!
