Title: Natural Parks Management in the Sudan: Dindir Natural Park Disease Survey
Author: El amin, Ahmed
Abstract: The natural parks of the Sudan were highlighted pertaining to their management systems concentrating on the Dindir National Park (DNP). DNP location, area, fauna and flora were also highlighted. Either management of fauna and flora were explained. Animal diseases were taken as a detailed management criterion. Surveys covered the pen -umbra residents, direct management and diseases. The established national natural parks were eight. Most management activities were conservation ones with little but essential promotional inputs to fauna and flora. DNP area was well guarded with regular patrolling most seasons of the year. Residential areas in the DNP buffer zone impose management difficulties as interventions of man and animals in the park are deterrent. Debility, diarrhoeas, cough, dyspnoea, haematurea, external and internal parasites were observed symptoms, and tentative diagnosis in different domestic species covers malnutrition, respiratory disorders, parasitosis and heart water. Mange and internal parasites are the predominant diseases in the wild and anthelopes were the most mortal species. As the biggest and most important national park in the Sudan, it was recommended that the disease surveys be intensified together with recruitment of more veterinarians in, towards positive efforts for proper diagnosis and treatment.
