Abstract

Lee and Bond (2018) quantified ecological effects associated with the establishment of the Randelin Wildlife Management Area (WMA) in the Tarangire Ecosystem. Brehony et al.'s (2018) criticisms of Lee and Bond (2018) largely stem from problematic interpretations of what we attempted and reported. Here, we respond to Brehony et al.'s 3 criticisms. First, we clarify that our concept of ecological success followed the specific terminology used in Brooks et al. (2012), thus ecological success of a WMA was defined as improved outcomes for wildlife. Second, we explain that our methods were appropriate and our findings were accurate at our scale of inference. Third, because quantitative anthropocentric analyses are lacking, the “reality” of community-based conservation in WMAs is not known.
