I found it interesting and innovative that the community gets "reward points" if they capture an image of a lion on tribal land via their camera traps

Thanks Dimitri
Good reading a great idea to get the locals involved like that.

Loss of natural habitat = human encroachment = animal people contact.

Solank die donasies daar is om te betaal sal die leeus oorleef maar wat as die geld opdroog? Nietemin hoop ek sy kry dit reg om meer groenes hulle woorde met hul beursies te steun. Nou moet iemand net die lig sien en boere toelaat om renoster horing wettig te oes en te verkoop.

All that is missing in that conservation model is the sustainable utilisation of the old male lions (past breeding age) that will otherwise waste away and be ripped apart by hyenas. The income derived from 2 or 3 lions sold to hunters each year could go a very long way. I would not be shocked if this is happening with her discreet and private blessing in her study area. I know a number of true conservationists that privately support hunting but would not dare say so publicly for fear of bad press and negative repurcusions.

The human populations continues to explode. More and more people will be living in and adjacent to wildlife areas so innovative models where the communities benefit significantly and directly from the wildlife will have to be found. Otherwise they will just kill it all and eat it / sell it.

And then you get stories like this one:
http://www.traveller24.com/Explore/Gree ... n-20180112

Unashamedly, they state that the story was provided by the Conservation Action Trust. Who is a trustee of Conservation Action Trust? Anti-hunting campaigner Ian Michler of Blood Lions. Clearly, objective reporting is not a priority.
