Our USFWS did the same thing to Tanzania and Zimbabwe several years ago. Arrogant 1st worlders telling African nations how things ought to be run.

The hunting industry has zero to do with poaching, besides being the only eyes and ears on the poachers in many areas. There would be even more poaching without any legitimate hunters in the field. That's why Kenya banned all hunting in '74, so the corrupt President in collusion with the poaching rings could rake in mo' money.

Sometimes its hard to blame the poachers in Africa, in the villages in Zambia most of their diet is rice/corn and mice, pretty sure most of us would be setting some snares to feed our kids if in the same situation, ivory/rhino poachers are different ballgame

Just to circle around and review, most of southern Africa, not just Zambia, survives on sadza/aka "grits" and...elephant tusks are ivory.

African poverty is pretty obvious. I hunted there. On the way back to Johannesburg, we got in a rural traffic jam. When we finally got to the source, we saw a Semi that had been hauling a lot of vegetables. It had wrecked. There were hundreds of Africans there getting the groceries. The driver told us that this was a windfall for the locals.

Also saw a lot of small communities in the outskirts of the towns with communal (government supplied) outhouses. No stores in them. They went for miles and our driver told us this was common in all African cities and towns.

When Muhammad Ali (Cassius Clay) went to Africa for a boxing match. It was called The Rumble in The Jungle. He was taken on a tour and ostensibly said “Sure glad my Grandfather didn’t miss the boat.”.


Without a sense of urgency, nothing ever happens.

Ivory/rhino meaning elephant/ rhino, figured that was understood
