Most hunters and game farm owners did not want to speak to the Sunday Tribune, but farm owner Mias Venter was open, and vowed that he was a nature lover.
During the week of 7 September this year, Durban ICC hosted the 14th World Forestry Congress. At this Congress was a delegation from the International Council for Game and Wildlife Conservation – or CIC. This group is a politically independent advisory body which aims to preserve wild game and hunting. Essentially, they promote the sustainable use of wildlife resources, which includes the natural forest areas around the world. As members of CHASA, our Association is affiliated to CIC.
