What Awaits Wildlife in Mozambique without Hunters
Oct 03, 2016
It is estimated that without the protection funded by safari operators and hunting clients, wildlife would be decimated by poachers' snares in only three years.
In 1995, there were 12,000 buffalo in Coutada 11. Today, because of hunting programs, there are more than 25,000. There were only 24 sable. Today there are about 4,000. The anti-poaching units in Mark Haldane's hunting concession alone remove over 3,000 snares a year and more than 100 of the devastating gintraps like the one above. Without hunting dollars, this work could not be done and wildlife would be left unprotected.
