    I think it is all to easy to forget that some of the wildlife rich countries don’t have an economy like ours in the West and that some hunting and trapping is carried out as a necessity simply to survive.

If those that are doing the hunting are benefiting from those coming to see the animals then instead of hunting them they become the conservationists.
