Trophy hunting is wildly controversial – does it hurt or save our wildlife population though? Animals have gone from plentiful, to critically endangered, such as the Rhino due to trophy hunting. Furthermore, people now engage in the growing sport of “canned hunting”, where the animals are brought direct to the hunters, in captivity rather than in the wild. While harsh on the surface level, hunters bring in astronomical numbers to hunt the big 5 in locations such as Africa, aiding the local economy and in essence giving back to the animals in the form of financial conservation. Are these fiscal numbers enough to serve wildlife reservations and offset the number of animals being killed? Dive into the facts from all angles and decide for yourself, what is the true relation between trophy hunting and its effect on conservation?
