"You look around at what's happening with wildlife right now in Africa, and it's not a bright picture," says Sowry. "In Botswana, trophy hunting has been banned. In Zimbabwe, traditional hunting is going away. Any time that hunting is taken away from a community, the value for wildlife goes away. Then you have unsustainable subsistence hunting, commercial poaching, and habitat destruction. Without hunting, and the community support and income that it provides, our wildlife areas would collapse."
