We all love animals. But some of us live in the real world, where each disaster gets cleaned up after the internet outrage tornado blows through. Those of us who use our dollars, our backs, and our brains to conserve wild animals and wild places know this story well. For those who have never purchased a hunting or fishing license and took the liberty to bash hunting, this video is for you.
A Conservationist’s Cry is a video put together by people and organizations in African whose livelihood is tied to hunting – the livelihood that you, the anti-hunter, have decimated. And, if you don’t care about the people and only care about the animals, there’s a horrifying ending just for you.
If, after watching the video, you still don’t believe hunting plays a vital role in conservation, try this:
Ask your Grandpa how many deer there were in his area of the country when he was a kid. How many are there now?
Or, think back to when you were a kid. Do you remember the amount of geese living in your area that you see now?
Hunters and anglers do the real world work of conserving wild animals and wild places. If you want to join in our effort, all you need to do is purchase a hunting or fishing license. Think of it like a membership in the club of people getting things done for the animals and places we both love.
