@Tom Kellie to me its a more about a better land utilisation option. There is so much more than just the mammals that occupy the area. Because wildlife are far less destructive and demanding on the land, many other smaller insects forms and birds also thrive. Also game meat is higher in protein and lower in fat, and free of hormones and antibiotics. Internal and external paracides are also harmful to insects and also birds. Ox-peckers for example suffer as a result. Wildlife farmers are also more tolerant of predators.
I hope that you won't mind if I quote you verbatim in classes this week.
If so, let me know and I won't do so.
What you've explained above is to the point, insightful and what needs to be heard here.
I'm chagrined to tell you that I'd never read anything like this before, nor had I thought of it.
After visiting your nation, last week, I'm far more open to what you've explained.
My students aren't likely to be as fortunate as I've been, so I'll explain the wildlife vs livestock issue, giving full credit to your elegant explanation.
A hearty thanks!
BTW: I've decided tonight to return to South Africa for another safari in late January, 2016.
