Saving Africa's Game Reserves

Streaming Video - 2013
Rate this:
Ecotourism has been a boon to the African economy yet between shrinking budgets and environmental challenges, game reserves are struggling. Should the parks be allowed to raise funds through animal utilization programs? Many game parks have already amassed great quantities of tusks from unavoidable elephant deaths but official policy and public opinion prevent their sale. This program explores the financial and ecological problems faced by African safari parks and, citing conditions at Chobe National Park, argues that misguided sentimentalism on the part of "animal rights fanatics" is having a harmful effect. The video also explains why banning the sale of ivory has not put an end to poaching.
