Conservation & Anti-Poaching

"In a civilized and cultivated country wild animals only continue to exist at all when preserved by sportsmen"

Theodore Roosevelt


“The excellent people who protest against all hunting, and consider sportsmen as enemies of wild life, are ignorant of the fact that in reality the genuine sportsman is by all odds the most important factor in keeping the larger and more valuable wild creatures from total extermination.”

Theodore Roosevelt


We strongly believe in ‘Conservation through Hunting’ and this is what we do and live for. This sentence is not just said for the sake of it but is meant deeply and lived every day by us in the bush. Hunters are putting all their efforts into conserving species and preserving habitat all over the world.

These efforts are only possible through funds generated by hunting. Hunters willing to pay huge amounts for taking an animal, directly finance the government’s national parks, anti-poaching patrols, animal studies and local communities.

It is necessary to realize that hunters pay for the protection and proliferation of the animals they hunt. Furthermore, the value and price given to an animal by the hunter who is willing to pay for it, preserves it from extinction. In our fast moving world, more and more people are in need of excessive resources resulting in destruction, degradation and fragmentation of wildlife habitat. In order to cope with these factors sustainable hunting and game management give the animal a value. This generates respect by local people operating farmland or living close to wilderness areas suffering from agricultural destruction and financial loss caused by wild animals.

In the modern world we live in, hunters are truly aware of having the responsibility to give back more than they take. In third world countries conservation efforts by the SCI and DSC foster animal protection and rural development in an intense way.


We highly recommend the non hunting, anti-hunters to educate themselves and have a look at the conservation through hunting success stories around the world before judging emotionally from an arm chair position. It is important to understand the difference between destructive poaching and the sustainable use of wild animals by trophy hunting in the most isolated and poorest parts of the world where no classic tourism could ever be conducted to give these animals a value protecting them from beeing slaughtered as a much sought after meat source. In a world of uncontrolled fast growing human population and  demand for space and resources, funds generated by animal right groups are and will always be a drop of water on hot stone when facing a continent like Africa and not a solution like sustainable use of wildlife preserving habitat.
