Botswana grants elephant hunting again

In Botswana, elephants can be hunted again. The ban on hunting caused an increasing number of conflicts between humans and animals, the Ministry of the Environment said.

Because their natural habitat is shrinking, elephants are increasingly killing cattle and destroying harvests. With around 130,000 heads, Botswana has the largest elephant population in all of Africa. A committee set up by the government advised earlier this year to lift the ban on elephant hunting.

Perhaps fewer safari tourists are coming to the country now. The country has a good reputation for nature protection.
