Great news that Costa Rica has enforced new laws banning the hunting of wildlife. At last, is this this the beginning of change towards a respectful caring world where our wildlife is considered as important as we are ourselves ? I can only hope so. Wildlife everywhere is under immense pressure to survive as human encroachment into their territories drive them to the brink of extinction. Hunting our wildlife demeans us as a race. There is no excuse ever to mindlessly kill any animal for pleasure. A huge thumbs up to Costa Rica for having the courage to do something that the rest of the world needs to think about doing, particularly Africa where the hunting of some of the most iconic animals on earth still goes on relentlessly.
