Banning it could do more harm than good

May 29th 2021
The idea of paying to kill an African animal for sport outrages many. But in some countries, where trophy-hunting is properly managed, it supports entire communities and contributes to the healthy management of animal numbers. Namibia, where this documentary is filmed, has well-managed hunts. It’s one of the few African countries where animal numbers are increasing. The backlash against trophy-hunting is understandable, but banning it could put at risk vast areas of African habitat, more than that covered by National Parks.
