World Wildlife Fund Opposes HSUS Plan To Defund African Hunting

When some people hear the name of the organization The World Wildlife Fund (WWF) they assume that this is an anti-hunting animal rights organization. For a long time I was under this assumption myself.

In recent months I have been in contact with some folks from the WWF regarding hunting programs they actively support in Africa, such as the conservancies in Namibia. They have been instrumental in implementing the Namibia program which has opened up millions of acres of truly wild hunting grounds throughout Namibia. I will be visiting and hunting in one of them this season.

This week Don Causey of The Hunting Report alerted me to the fact that the Humane Society Of the US (HSUS) has managed to get language into a report of the United States House of Representatives that would gut a number of safari hunting programs in Africa including the one in Namibia.

I spoke with the National Rifle Association's Manager of Hunting Policy and he assures me that NRA is working the issue and according to Safari Club Ineternational's "In the Crosshairs" newsletter they are working on on it as well. Both groups know how to get the job done. They have collaborated on a number of important issues recently to the great benefit of hunting. I hope it is not to late for them to get this fixed as well.

I also learned this week that the WWF is opposed to the HSUS language and is also working to try to solve the problem.

It looks to me that we have an ally in the World Wildlife Fund and we as hunters should keep that in mind when we consider these important issues. - TJR
