In Sydney is het de eerste weken van het nieuwe jaar geweldig werken – echt waar. Het gaf ons de gelegenheid ons te hergroeperen, ons te laten inspireren en de neuzen weer dezelfde kant op te krijgen. En dat ik met nieuwe energie terugkeerde was maar goed ook – alleen al deze week ontving ik meer dan 500 nieuwsartikelen over de walvisjacht in mijn mailbox. De aanleiding is een inmiddels bekend en jaarlijks terugkerend verschijnsel: de gevaarlijke en veel geld kostende confrontatie tussen de jagers en de tegenstanders van de jacht is weer begonnen.

Conclusions of trophy hunting study has lions, animal welfare groups roaring in disapproval

A new study published in the journal PLoS ONE makes the claim that allowing limited lion trophy hunting in Africa, rather than bans called for by numerous animal conservation and welfare groups, might better benefit the species. With the African lion continuing to roam closer and closer to extinction, the questionable conclusions drawn by the authors of the paper seem contrary to common-sense and the opposite of a precautionary approach to conservation.
