Zambia has become the latest African country to ban hunting of lions and leopards.  Individuals once thought that hunting would bring a lot of money to the country, but the $2 million received from hunting is virtually insignificant to the millions they receive from tourism.

'Tourists come to Zambia to see the lion and if we lose the lion we will be killing our tourism industry,' Sylvia Masebo, the Tourism and Arts Minister states.

Regardless of their reasons, it is very good news that they are banning the killing of these beautiful animals.  The entire environment is dependent on the balance of life within.

Thank you Zambia!

 

Peace & Love,
