Trophy hunting: how it can protect Africa’s wildlife


Trophy hunting sparks outrage around the world, but it can actually help to protect Africa’s endangered landscapes and wildlife. Taking this proven conservation tool off the table, with no viable alternative, puts millions of acres of habitat, the wildlife and the people living there, at risk. In the African countries, where hunting is properly managed, fees paid by visiting hunters from North America and Europe support entire communities, and contribute to biodiversity conservation. Livelihoods of rural Africans are enhanced, entire eco-systems are protected from conversion to industrial agriculture, and wildlife numbers thrive.
