How Trophy Hunting Aids Wildlife Conservation—The John Batchelor Show

A podcast on the important role of trophy hunting in African wildlife conservation.

PERC’s Catherine Semcer sits down with John Batchelor of The John Batchelor Show to discuss her testimony before the U.S. House Natural Resources Committee on the “CECIL Act”. Though an uncomfortable reality, trophy hunting has a proven track record of helping conserve imperiled species throughout Africa. Trophy hunting incentivizes habitat conservation, making it an economically viable land use. Similarly, the proceeds from trophy hunting help fund anti-poaching efforts. By turning wildlife from liabilities into assets, local communities are empowered to help conserve these precious species.
