While the world grapples with its ever increasing effects on the health of the planet, one aspect that has been a matter of concern for several years is hunting for sport. Many trophy hunters disregard the impact their actions can have on the entire eco-system. Some conservationists, working close to the issue believe that this issue needs more attention than it currently receives.
