Like many people, I imagine, I was drawn to wildlife biology by watching David Attenborough when I was a child. I was captivated by not only the variety and beauty of wildlife but by the breathtaking environmental landscapes that support this life. As an inspired child, I knew from the first Planet Earth episode I wanted to work with wildlife and I wanted to promote the habitats that housed the wildlife. It became my mission to help conserve the natural world and all of its awe-inspiring wonders.

In establishing the IWCC, Secretary Zinke is placing sole emphasis on hunting wildlife, which could have serious implications on wildlife conservation in Africa. In addition to a skewed mandate, the constituencies from which IWCC members will be drawn is unbalanced and will bias the advice provided to Secretary Zinke. For example, AWF has been informed that the firearms and ammunitions manufacturing industry is being specifically included as a constituent in the IWCC. We strongly recommend that anyone with a commercial interest in loosening restrictions on hunting wildlife be excluded from the IWCC. While hunting can be an acceptable conservation strategy when well-managed and guided by sound science, promoting hunting with no checks and balances provides conduits for infiltration by poaching and illegal wildlife trafficking, which is a serious and growing global crisis.

The notion that organisms, their relations to one another and to their physical surroundings is crucial when it comes to ecology explains the fact why, when starting with the analysis in this way, one must include not just natural ecology, but also social and spiritual. The reading assignments for this week has been very educative about the environment and making it a better place for living.
