There is a good article by Mike Norton-Griffiths in the latest copy of the New scientist magazine about the 60 to 70% decline in large animals in Kenya since “Sport hunting” was banned in 1977.
The extra revenue from tourism has been concentrated in very small areas, and has not been as great as expected.
The Kenya Parliament voted to reintroduce sport hunting but was blocked by the President after well funded foreign non-governmental organisations (International Fund for Animal Welfare and The American Humane Society) used mis-leading lobbying and no doubt some finical incentives to influence him.
I find it encouraging that a pro-hunting article is published in a respected scientific magazine. You can read the full article here………… www.newscientist.com......... You will have to pay or going buy the magazine, it is a good read anyway.
