What are the effects of hunting on the ecosystem (both positive and negative)? (Chandler)
Hunting effects many things, including our own environment. Although most of the affects are negative, there are some positive effects to the environment.
Positive: Population control, and Hunting licenses
Negative: Hunting could decline in the particular animals species, this will affect everything around it, hibernation and migration, as well as poaching.
What are some of the reasons that people hunt for sport and/or poach? (Dylan)
- Collection of rare and well valued animal skins or bone.
- The most common reason for poaching is financial gain, one single rhino horn will sell for $300,000!
