Although hunting and conservation may appear to be at odds, the truth is that many great conservation efforts have been propelled by hunters. For example, the U.S. National Park System was created in large part to the efforts of hunters. So how does hunting benefit conservation today? Critics argue that hunting encourages poaching, animal cruelty, and can lead to extinction. Proponents counter that hunting encourages sustainability and controls animal populations, and that hunting for sustenance is more ethical than buying commercial meat. The diverging perspectives that comprise this volume provide readers with a comprehensive view of the controversies surrounding this topic.
