Can we talk about Cecil the Lion?
AUGUST 12, 2015
Tell me, what happens if we rip away hunting when hunting protects more wildlife land in Africa than national parks? Animal rights is concerned with individual animals, and their suffering and welfare. Conservation is concerned about protecting populations, species, habitats, ecosystems. There is a reason we talk about wildlife and habitat conservation, not wildlife and habitat preservation. I’m not unsympathetic to concerns about animal welfare, really.
