Africa fumes over trophy hunting ban

African governments' representatives and private conservancy owners have come guns blazing on non-governmental organisations (NGOs), Europe and western countries, urging them to stop attacking the region's conservation methods and wildlife trade as the attacks are not based on science but on emotions.


It was an emotional encounter in Johannesburg, South Africa at a media briefing that was meant for Africa and SADC in particular to speak out the continent's concerns, fears and correct conservation status.

The leaders and private business owners said they are concerned with bullying NGOs and some western countries who are using money to create a wildlife crisis and divide the continent over its resources.
