The Duke of Cambridge supports the return of elephant trophy hunting in Botswana because it could help conserve threatened species, according to the country’s leader.

President Masisi met privately with the duke this week in London at a conference on illegal wildlife trade. They discussed the problem of Botswana having too many elephants and the damage they caused to livelihoods.

Campaigners condemned the president’s plans to lift the ban on trophy hunting last night, saying killing wildlife for sport could not be justified on conservation grounds.

In his speech opening the conference, the duke spoke of his fear that elephants, tigers and rhinos could be extinct in the wild by the time his children were in their 20s.

Hello Milan, I just watched your video on disassembling/reassembling the CZ 550. I have spent days looking for something like this. I now have no reservations taking apart my rifle. I like to do this with all my guns so I understand them "inside and out". Thank you very much for the information. It is greatly appreciated.
