At the same time as Botswana bans hunting close to its reserves and Kenya uses Maasai hunters to protect its lions, Uganda introduces commercial hunting into its Pian-Upe wildlife reserve in Uganda hoping to improve conservation.

KIlling any animal has nothing to do with conservation. It is destruction, cruelty, and weakens the conservation of animals.

Thank you, Simone! The hunting is THE reason these animals are becoming endangered, like the lion, or becoming rare, like the leopard. There are few accurate counts of this magnificent animal, although according to many, there are far fewer of these cats than 20 or 30 years ago.
