鼓勵生態旅遊

Brad表示,波札那於4年前全面禁止打獵,動物數目有上升的趨勢,尤其是雄獅。「以前,兩頭雄獅領導全族6至7年,現在多了雄獅從其他地方過來。這是個好的象徵,證明這裏的生態比從前健康,因為雄獅首領不應佔據位置太久,最好領導全族18個月至兩年。」

保育措施固然重要,另一邊廂,鼓勵生態旅遊也同時能夠幫助波札那這樣的地區發展。旅遊社Elementz專門舉辦非洲生態旅行團,CEO及創辦人Sandor Weyers表示,冀望藉着生態旅遊讓當地社群有就業機會,「令當地人能賺錢過活,而不是接受賄賂,帶外地人去打獵。」同時,也可以讓當地人感受到自然環境的價值,從而學懂重視和欣賞。

非洲共有54個國家,有很多國家並不如一般大眾所想般危險,例如Brad來自的波札那(又譯博茨茨瓦納)。Sandor表示,生態旅遊強調的是,希望為遊客帶來有意義的旅程,而不只是吃喝玩樂和消費。
