    Two of the proposals that have been submitted to CITES for consideration need to be examined. The first is to place all African elephant populations on Appendix I and the second is to place the African lion on Appendix I. This would effectively put a stop to the safari hunting of these species.

    Without the revenue generated from hunting these species many safari hunting companies will simply go out of business. Now the anti-hunting lobby would obviously rejoice at such an outcome but what would happen to those safari hunting areas once the hunting companies have been forced out? Tanzania alone has over 100 000 square miles of hunting land that lies outside of formally protected areas.

    In this video clip the former Tanzanian minister of natural resources, Mr. Lazaro Nyalandu, and the secretary-general of the Tanzanian professional hunter’s association, Mr. Mike Angelides, describe what happens to a hunting area once the safari operator is forced out.

    Of course we'll say no, but it is not our country.
    If they keep killing off the white farmer it will shut down by default.

    Sadly if this were to happen many species will be wiped out never to return
    The information is out there. The United States has several examples of how hunting conservation has worked with turkeys and whitetails and wild sheep. I see many other cases around the world where the local community has banded together controlled poaching and have grown the numbers and opened up hunting again. They just can't see beyond their own anti hunting beliefs. I find it very frustrating. When they finally get their way and a species is wiped out they will once again blame hunting.

    Liberals always believe that they are just one more "better" law away from solving the world's problems. I'm really getting worn out by it.
