This is why sustainable conservation is so damn profitable!

Not so long ago we were asked by a syndicate to investigate their wildlife management strategy because a decline in their roe deer trophy sizes had been identified.

What can we learn from COVID-19’s effects on wildlife and hunting?

After being locked up inside for weeks now, many may be wondering what the origin is of the situation we’re in, as this virus outbreak likely arose from a wildlife management problem.

Scientists, by and large, believe the virus originated in bats before being transmitted to humans. These infected bats were believed to have been sold at a wet market in Wuhan, China. However, no one currently knows for certain so all we can do is speculate.
