    That's good, cause no one is forcing you.

    BTW, how much do you contribute to conservation of African wildlife?

    Those animals have been my primary focus throughout this thread

    Already told you the animals in question are not on the endangered list under that classification, but like all the other facts that have been put forward none of that makes a difference to you, because it is all emotion.
    No that one was all maths actually

    Well go have another steak someone else killed for and pat yourself on the back.
    Yes because there will certainly be no Rhino on my plate nor will there ever

    Well I've been on a couple of fairly expensive Safari Holidays in Kenya so I suspect my tourist coin has contributed in some small way

    What do you contribute ?

    You suspect your tourist coin, huh? So these hunters, spending many 10's of thousands of dollars have contributed FAR more to the conservation of African wildlife than you'll ever hope to in your life. Damn those immoral bastards! Trying to maintain sustainable herd numbers while you have suspected some of your tourist coin "helped". Why that suspected coin and your internet warrior posts here must make you the superior conversationalist. You know, compared to those who have helped feed poor people in Africa and paying 10's of thousands of dollars into preserves and conservation facilities.

    I don't contribute anything, I'm not the one up in arms about people hunting in a sustained manner that is in line with conservation of a species.

    Maybe if you and your buddy, Ricky Gervais, contributed more money, these preserves wouldn't have to turn to big game hunters for conservation funds. You seem to have a problem, so why don't you contribute and work on a solution? Or is it just better to sit on the internet and wish for these hunters to die than it is to actually do something?

    If they are truly worried about conservation they can give their money to the various wildlife charities without killing anything. Ascribing altruistic motives to trophy hunters is laughable

    The science.. which you keep ignoring shows that "sparing the animals".. has been shown to be ineffective.

    Hunting which includes the death of the animal is an extremely valuable management tool. You keep advocating for something the science overwhelmingly shows to be ineffective.

    Again... you are completely ignoring that the harvesting of the game animal is a valuable management tool in developing, and maintaining a healthy animal population. The science is well established on this point.
