Botswana to ban hunting


Botswana will officially ban the hunting of wildlife for both commercial purposes and sport hunting, from January 2014, according to a statement issued by government. The announcement follows a commitment from the country to conserve and preserve the tourism industry.

"This comes as a realisation that the shooting of wild game purely for sport and trophies is no longer seen to be compatible with either our national commitment to conserve and preserve local fauna or the long-term growth of the local tourism industry," says Edmont Moabi, the Permanent Secretary at the Ministry in the statement.
