November 3, 2008 in HUNTING INFO
Thank you for supporting Real Africa Safari Holdings, by visiting our website:
The debate between hunters and conservationists will always exist, there is no doubt about that. Perhaps the fundamental contribution of ammunition against ethical hunting, is provided by un-ethical hunters themselves. It is and has always been imprtant to identify the rogue’s in our industry and to root them out where ever possible!
It our humble opinion that client’s and visting tourists can actually play a much more important role in this process, and thereby contribute towards removing the fly by nights from this industry.
The obvious way to achieve this, is to not to accept the bad, and the un-ethical services, such vistors or hunters some times encounter. When a tourist or visiting hunter encounters such un-ethical practices during or after his visit, it is important for that person, to take the matter further, and not just to accept it, and write it off as a bad experience.
In this way, relevant authorities and organisations governing or protecting the industry can get to hear of these mal practices, and assist in putting an end to such operators.
Organisations such as SCI (Safari Club International) can play a vital role in such dealings, and also link the hunter up with the applicable governing authorities.
In order to protect our industry, it is vital for us to stand up against the people doing us the most damage, and sorry to say, it is often players and operators within our own industry that do this.
Help us rid the industry of the foul players, by going public and making their un-ethical practices within the industry known! Help boycot such operators on the trade shows, conventions and media. Help the industry, to help you!
