Newsletter - August 2018

 by Edmond Rouillard (Outfitter) and Niel Uys (Manager):


Dear friends


I trust you are well.


The hunting season of 2018 is slowly getting to an end. As Harloo Safaris we have made some new friends and extended our list of acquaintances from all over the world. We would like to use this opportunity to thank all our clients (Friends) that have supported us in the past and especially this year. We only have a few more local meat hunts left and a couple of outfitters that will be coming to hunt Buffalo with us. In this newsletter you can read about our last couple of hunts for the year as well as some other interesting articles about hunting and conservation.

In this Newsletter:

1. The last two safaris for the year 2018

2. Conservation through hunting

3. Great deals on hunting for the 2019 season.


Enjoy!

 

Yours Sincerely
Edmond Rouillard (Outfitter)

Sustainable Use – A poorly understood and under-appreciated concept.

 

The Constitution of the Republic of South Africa requires that our natural resources should be used in a manner that is sustainable and will not rob future generations of the benefits that can be derived from them.

 

In the case of the wildlife of Southern Africa, indeed nearly that of all Africa, 250 of the 350 years since the arrival of the colonial powers saw the exact opposite of what our Constitution requires.

Philosophy, Politics and Economics: Part 2.

 

Despite the fact that some human populations have apparently managed to avoid the worst consequences of the predictions of Malthus, it is undeniable that wild animal populations cannot.  

 

All other things being equal, the latter will generally keep breeding until their food supplies run out and then they’ll go hungry, lose condition and even starve.  Read more...

Tanzania’s Selous Game Reserve in Trouble. Part 1

 

Currently there is the impression that the Tanzanian government is reneging on its long-standing commitment to conservation. 

 

Ownership is being lost. Still, wildlife tourism remains one of the most important industries and foreign exchange sources in the country.

Does Safari Hunting Benefit Elephant Conservation?

 

Safari hunting has been generating benefits and revenues that are especially effective and unique in reducing those threats and conserving elephant. But for that legal, regulated hunting, the present status and prospects for elephant would be far worse.

 

This short video highlights some facts and figures on the subject.

Buffalo Dream Ranch

Before I continue, I need to address one mis-perception.  Critics have categorized the ranch as a feedlot and the husbandry as intensive. 

 

This is absolute nonsense. Although I saw more rhino in a single day than I will probably see again in my life, they were all wandering around perfectly freely, dotted on the plains and almost every cow had a calf at foot.
