Hunting is the #1 Conservation Tool- Botswana

While on my safari in Botswana back in 2016 I had a chance to talk with Jason Bridger about hunting’s role as a conservation mechanism. He had some very interesting and insightful comments which he developed after many years guiding in Africa. Funds generated from hunting help wildlife in many ways, but here are just a few examples:

1). Economic incentive to protect the wildlife by placing value on animals

2). Anti-Poaching efforts that protect the wildlife from people who kill indiscriminately

3). Land acquirement and protection

4). Employment and revenue sources for local people (guides, trackers, skinners, cooks, maids, drivers, etc.)

5). Food for literally millions of malnourished people across the continent where hunting is legalized

6). Revenue stream for landowners as well as all the people they employ

7). Infrastructure such as roads, bridges, schools, hospitals that are built to help local communities

 

 

Jason recently passed away in a tragic accident. There is a fund in place to help support his family through this difficult time. To learn more about how you can help his family, click the following link. (https://gogetfunding.com/james-education-fund-our-jasons-legacy/#.Wd46RikREMM)
