This chapter shows that generated data were triangulated, and summarises the respective thematic areas, which informed development and structuring. More than 50% of the tourism revenues accrue from the sale of gorilla viewing permits at bwindi Impenetrable national park. The sport hunting model was reintroduced by uganda wildlife authority (UWA) on private land around lake mburo national park in 2001. According to UWA, despite the strategic location of the rwenzoris along uganda's main tourism circuit, the park receives few visitors compared with other parks along the circuit. Tourism can contribute to conservation directly by generating revenues for conservation activities, and indirectly when benefits for people generate support for biodiversity conservation. Drawing on innovations from elsewhere, a range of different forms of partnership between actors have been implemented as tourism governance models to enable the linkage between conservation and development through tourism in uganda.
