NAPHA AGM Nominations

DSCF "We Hunt For Life"

Do you want to do everything ing your power to make sure that your children, grandchildren and all who follow them have a chance to experience the thrill of the hunt and to know that you have done your share to conserve wildlife, wilderness and to protect our hunting heritage? Dallas Safari Club and DSC Foundation have undertaken a far-reaching initiative to inform the general public and hunters of why we hunt, and concurrently, why well-regulated hunting is critical for wildlife and wilderness places. You may have seen some of the initial components of the campaign. This project is massive in scale and scope and is part of a long-term goal of changing the way the non-hunting public views hunting. If you hunt, you understand the benefits of hunting, but the pro-hunting message is often drowned out by the short sound bites and emotion-based arguments that come from the anti-hunting advocates.

As with any significant and aggressive campaign like the We Hunt for Life project, it is critical to get the message out on platforms and venues that reach the desired audience and in a way that resonates with that target audience. The DSC Board and the DSC Foundation Board have evidenced their total commitment to the project by donating at least US$1,000.00 per Board member to the campaign. Now we need your help. [Read more]

Wildlife Bill Draft Stakeholder Meeting

24 July 2018

The Ministry of Environment and Tourism (MET) released the latest draft (Draft No 4) of the newly proposed Wildlife Bill last week, along with an invitation to submit any contributions and comments that stakeholders feel should be considered.

NAPHA distributed this draft together with our submissions made last year, via newsletter last week Friday, and appealed to its members to thoroughly study the Bill and submit input to the office which will be brought under the attention of MET at the upcoming Wildlife Bill meeting scheduled for Tuesday, 24 July 2018.

In the interim, NAPHA learned that very little of its submissions, were indeed considered in this draft and after discussions with our NGO partners were informed that very little of their recommendations and requirements were included. This obviously leads to great uncertainty and confusion, which needs to be addressed at the upcoming meeting.

NAPHA is in the process of obtaining a legal opinion on the way forward and this will be shared with members next week. Various members have submitted their feedback on this matter and we have noted all of your concerns accordingly.
