2. Don’t Shoot Unless it’s with a Camera
The world reacted in horror when American dentist, Walter Palmer, killed Cecil the lion on a Zimbabwean safari in July. He paid a guide $55,000 to help him hunt the lion with a crossbow, which is a pretty enticing sum to tempt unscrupulous guides into the business. Conservationists – and any decent human beings – are rightly aghast at this “hobby”. Cecil drew particular ire because he was a tagged and protected lion, but no magnificent creature should be fodder for trophy hunters. Sport hunting was banned in Kenya back in 1977, but wealthy tourists sometimes get around the red tape. Don’t be that douchebag. Photo safaris are the way to go.
