For Immediate Release: January 24, 2013

Reno, Nev - Before an audience of more than 200 international conservationists, the Honorable Minister of Tourism and Arts Sylvia Masebo of Zambia outlined her country's vision for sustainable-use conservation at the Safari Club International (SCI) meeting in Reno, Nev. Over the past two days, the Honorable Minister Masebo has met with the leaders in lion conservation, the leaders in big game conservation, and ardent hunter-conservationists in order to better understand the symbiotic relationship between rural communities in Zambia and the wildlife dynamics.

The audience of conservationists recognized the true dedication the Honorable Minister Masebo has made to ensure that wildlife and conservation will remain a priority for the Zambian government. The Minister also noted that the hunting community, the hunters themselves, will be the most dedicated of conservationists in helping to fund the most accurate population surveys for the country's big game species. The Minister has also called for continued interactions between the hunting community and the anti-poaching rangers to improve enforcement throughout the many national parks and game reserves in Zambia.

"Safari Club International is incredibly appreciative of Minister Masebo taking the long journey to Reno, Nev., to address the conservation focused hunters of our organization," said SCI President John Whipple. "Her commitment to work collaboratively with SCI and the entire hunter-conservationist community is truly welcome, and SCI's members are today committing hundreds of thousands of dollars to conduct the necessary scientific research that is needed for Zambia's big game species."

The Honorable Minister of Tourism and Arts Sylvia Masebo concluded her remarks to the members of SCI with a standing ovation from all in attendance at the Annual Hunters' Convention.

It will be interesting to see if this comes to anything or is just smoke and mirrors.

Here's hoping.

+1....Informed/Rational judgement and truth would be a welcome change when it comes to conservation and governmental policies in most African countries.....

It may all depend on who is above her on the political feeding chain.

Mule deer and Colorado elk seasons almost done! Hunters driving farm roads, looking for racks, their PH driving them along, I ask that you not pull into my drive. The buck behind me, on the boundary line of the GMU somehow knows. The hunter laughs, I would invite you in to see my Searcy rifles but social distancing prevails, darkness arrives and the buck slides away into secret tree grove...

Many thanks for re formatting my article for the forum

I served my time in both the bush and during the bush war

I hope it did it justice

Education is where it is at - without it the wild places are history

You - sir - are well placed to make a difference
