DANGEROUS GAME - BIG 7
WHAT IS THE BIG 5
On the African continent, the big five game animals are the lion, African elephant, Cape buffalo, leopard, and rhinoceros. The term big five game (sometimes capitalized or quoted as "Big Five") was coined by big-game hunters and refers to the five most difficult animals in Africa to hunt on foot. Subsequently the term was adopted by safari tour operators for marketing purposes.
The term is used in most tourist and wildlife guides that discuss African wildlife safaris. The members of the Big Five were chosen for the difficulty in hunting them and the degree of danger involved, rather than their size.
The big five are among the most dangerous, yet most popular species for big game hunters to hunt.

DANGEROUS GAME CONSERVATION
Hunters and conservationists, alike find it incredible that there still the majority of the population still do not recognise the absolute need to get everybody involved in initiatives that aid conservation and the preservation of biodiversity in 21st century Africa. Partisan beliefs prevent the anti-hunting community from recognising that it isn’t hunting that threatens nature but the real threats to conservation in the continent is poverty, weak or corrupt governments and gross mismanagement that are the real enemies. Despite many education initiatives by the hunting fraternity it is nevertheless still the case that anti-hunters tend to be not interested in the merits of hunting to be a conservation instrument or perhaps the proven fact that it offers healthier protein to a lot of people today or that it generates wealth in rural communities.
Arguments that sustainable utilisation of wildlife inside the sport of hunting is beneficial for conservation, and for mankind, manage to make no effect over the anti-hunting fraternity. Most anti-hunters manage to be a lot more enthusiastic about the "suffering" on the single animal, i.e. the animal staying hunted, than during the well currently being on the complete inhabitants. Whereas hunters normally argue that it is their right, and never the animals’ rights, which are being threatened. Instead of focusing the debate on the numerous benefits hunting delivers to the rural communities and in many cases the inflow of foreign currency.
What does hunting do for conservation?
The sale of hunting licenses, tags, and stamps is definitely the most important source of funding for many countries wildlife conservation attempts. Additionally, the control of permits and adherence to closed seasons and the boundaries of hunting areas does more than is realised for the protection of both animals and the fauna and flora of our precious environment. Moreover, the process of obtaining all expected licenses, and paying taxes on hunting tools and ammunition, means hunters create a significant contribution in the direction of guaranteeing the future of many species of wildlife and habitat for your future. The federal income derived from taxation on hunting means hunters are contributing countless a lot of dollars for conservation packages that benefit the entire array of wildlife species hunted and not hunted.
Each and every year, almost $300 million in hunting taxes dispersed to State agencies to guidance wildlife management programs, the acquisition of lands open to hunters, and hunter training and protection lessons. Neighborhood hunting and countrywide conservation corporations operate to protect the future of wildlife by location aside many acres of habitat and speaking up for conservation in our national and state capitals.
Hunting is no longer the sole domain of males as the growth in the number of females actively hunting is growing dramatically women are spending more time in tree stands and hunting blinds and putting fresh meat in the kitchen than ever before. The stereotype of the male being the sole hunter gatherer is a thing of the past.
