We Should Kill More Lions

10,000 Birds

Assuming you have a passing interest in wildlife, or at the least you know someone that does, and chances are in the last week or so you’ve become aware that some lady from America shot a lion. I’m not just saying this to be an annoying gadfly on the backside of the birding and general wildlife community, although this is certainly a fringe benefit. Take the Selous Game Reserve in Tanzania. You protect an entire ecosystem that holds 350 bird species.

Can we talk about Cecil the Lion?

10,000 Birds

Tell me, what happens if we rip away hunting when hunting protects more wildlife land in Africa than national parks? Although lip service was paid to the fact that lions are endangered and a lion was poached, the language of anger was the language of animals rights. I’ve written before at length about how conservation and animal rights , while often drawing on mutual a reverence of nature, are different beasts. Booking were down by half in some wildlife tourist sites.
