Go Ahead Shoot the Endangered Species

Brad (me) – Amateur Photographer 😉

Yes, you heard it right, shoot the endangered species as much as you want, but with your camera and not with your gun! Trophy hunting is a blood sport liked by few people and those who can afford it are basically from the rich and developed countries like the US, Germany, UK, etc. It is saddening and depressing to see the photos that these trophy hunters click sitting or keeping a foot on the dead carcasses of the animals that they kill. Isn’t it is better to shoot them with your cameras when they are alive, happy, and enjoying a day with their families? What a beautiful souvenir it is to carry back home rather than taking home the head of a dead animal! Isn’t it better to decorate your game rooms with the photos of these beautiful wild animals, instead of their antlers, skin, or tusks?
Some justify that it helps maintain the economy of the countries where they go for this kind of hunting, but many environmentalists are of the opinion that wildlife safari, where one goes to watch or click photos of the animals in their natural habitat brings in more money than the blood sports. Also when these trophy hunters go for big game trophies like elephants, rhinos, lions, etc., which are already on the endangered list, within a decade they will have to give up their passion forever, as there will be nothing left to shoot! Please go through this infographic put together by TuskPhoto to check out the list of Africa’s endangered species, and try to spread the awareness to saves these beautiful animals.
