In the space allotted one can do no more than catalogue the human and sociological factors which occur in the nature conservation aspects of land use planning. for the Human factors ranges from the basics attitudes of mankind towards nature, via the magical use of the rhino horn and armadille scales to the interaction of tourists and indigenous inhabitants. The following notes therefore set out to classify, but not exhaustively, the types of human situation which nature conservation can throw up, in the hope that in a gathering of such wide experience each one of us will find some situation concerning which he h s specialized knowledge which he can share with the rest of us, and so add to our general fund of knowledge on the subject. The humans concerned in the situation can be divided into three broad categories, A) those on or adjacent to the land concerned, B) the general population of tie country concerned, and C) the rest of the world. The most intractable problems are of course not those that occur within these groups, but those set up by interaction between the groups.
