  1. A recent article from National Geographic highlighted the fact that the World Bank has earmarked funds for Mozambique towards trophy hunting of lions and elephants - with a a use it or lose it clause. http://news.nationalgeographic.com/2015/07/150708-trophy-hunting-poaching-elephants-lions-rhinos-africa/ Personally I find this a monumentally stupid decision, and not because it's trophy hunting, but the fact is that these are species that are critically close to becoming endangered and extinct. Also, Mozambique suffers heavily from poaching - and their wildlife was close to being wiped out during the civil war, and its only recently that these areas have been recovering. They don't even have large populations of elephant and lions that could justify a hunting for conservation, or culling argument. It would be nice to hear from others, possibly more educated on this matter than me, on whether this strategy make sens or not - its completely incomprehensible to me.
