Full Text:



Lesotho is an independent enclave within the Republic of South Africa. It is roughly the size of Belgium and has a population of approximately one million. Prior to independence (4 October 1966) no official action had been taken toward nature conservation. Priority had been given to rural development schemes, improvement of agricultural practices, and to urban and industrial development.
