Navigating African Conservation

PERC Research Fellow Catherine Semcer joins Elevate the Hunt to discuss the African model of wildlife conservation. Catherine notes the important role hunting plays in funding conservation throughout the African continent. She explains why markets have played such a unique role in supporting conservation in Africa, argues that it would be a mistake to take away hunting revenue before credible funding alternatives exist, and discusses what the future of African conservation funding might look like.
