Apparently, there are three species of African antelope that are either extinct or very endangered in Africa, that are actually THRIVING in Texas. Same with the Bobwhite Quail in Northern Florida and Southern Georgia.
Because these species are being preserved on private hunting properties. Because private ownership creates incentive and desire to preserve and maintain.
Buuuut, now they are being threatened due to an increase in government regulations, with much help from animal groups who want to preserve and protect the animals.
Which I don’t get. Why try to get rid of the people that are the only ones preserving these species? Wouldn’t you rather keep the species alive and thriving and living a good life even if they get hunted in the end rather then letting them die out and never having them on the world again and denying future generations the chance to see them?
Just a thought.
But I guess the act of activism is more important than actual results.
