Abstract

Wildlife and Biodiversity management require a reliable and relevant data on the distribution of species, abundance, their habitats, as well as threats. Therefore, RS (Remote Sensing) and GIS (Geographic information system) Assists in data collection and to analyse the abundance of wildlife as well as provide suitable data for conservation management and planning. This paper reviews the relevance of RS and GIS in wildlife and biodiversity Management.
