If we need to keep animals in a zoo to protect them from going extinct, then the problem isnt with the wild animals.
Ive seen programs like ICF
, where they raise the animals
towards the animal kingdom. If the Zoo has a breeding program towards the wild and uses the revenue to it and not profit you have a program.
I talked to a man who offered a program where they offered poaching, i was mad, angried, furious until i heard him say;" The animals they are poaching
are the same who would be killed in the wild, i cant stop poaching.
But if i get 100.000 dollars for a sick and dying wild animal, I can use that money for the breeding program.
People will not offer money or donate anything unless its a ( win win ) situation.
The hunters has funded us with a breeding program, is it morally wrong? Yes, but this is the only solution that works without any ideals. I work with
reality not a fantasy.
I looked at him, it felt so wrong to admit he was right. The right choices may not always be the ones closest to the heart.
