Tourism and the Consumption of Wildlife
Hunting, Shooting and Sport Fishing
by Brent Lovelock
Edition: 1st., 2008
This book addresses a range of contentious issues facing the consumptive wildlife tourism sector across a number of destinations in Europe, North America, Africa, India, Arabia and Oceania. Practices such as baited bear hunting, trophy
hunting of threatened species, and hunting for conservation are debated, along with the impact of this type of tourism on indigenous communities and on wider societies. Research on all aspects of ‘consumptive wildlife tourism’ is included, which for the purposes of the book is defi ned to include all tourism that involves the intended killing of wildlife for sport purposes, and may include the harvestof wildlife products. This includes, among others, the practices of recreational hunting, big-game hunting and safari operations, traditional/indigenous hunting, game-bird shooting, hunting with hounds, freshwater angling and saltwater game fi shing.
