Hunting in South Africa

Did you know?

– according to employment statistics from 2010, the commercial wildlife ranching industry in South Africa provides employment for more than 100 000 people.

– legitimate hunting provides incentives for the local communities to protect the wildlife in their area, with income from hunting safaris going towards the building, maintenance and running of clinics and schools, as well as the provision of meat.

– The trophy hunting increases the economic value of the animals, what pays stays. Since hunting was banned in Kenya in 1977 the number of most animal species has dropped by between 40% and 90%. Because ut has no value, the game is quickly eradicated, mostly by poachers, to make ways for domesticated animals such as cows and sheep. The cattle and goats are easy prey for predators, which then become vermin for the farmers. The problems compound as overgrazing destroys the ecosystem and all manner of plants, insects and birds disappear.

– The economic value of the wildlife in South Africa has increased due to the hunting industry, and by 2008 the country had more wildlife than in the past 150 years.

– Private game farmers own two-and-a-half times the amount of land held by government parks.
