Since the late 19th century, hunters have played been crucial in the preservation of both flora and fauna, hunting camps maintaining nature’s balance and the hierarchy of the food chain. Hunters like Theodore Roosevelt and William Frederick Cody were pioneers of the sport with great love for hunting and the thirst to quench for wildlife knowledge. Their thought process has helped shape our understanding on wildlife management by realizing the fact that humans are superior but not cruel and would not misuse and over poach animals in addiction.
Hunters are the biggest factors affecting the initiation of wild fauna protection. With the realization of the importance of animals by witnessing the extinction of famous species like the passenger pigeon, hunters have started creating awareness and fundraising campaigns that work for the conservation of wildlife by reserving and restoring lands back to their former glory to provide the animals with as much of a natural habitat as possible.
These hunters and gatherers associations not only influence by raising funds but also influence at a legislator level by getting laws passed for the conservation of wildlife. Allowing this opportunity to hunt for all the hunters and giving value to their way of thinking has resulted in the birth of NGOs and unions that work especially for the protection of wildlife and making a great tourist addition as well by creating sanctuaries and wildlife parks for animals kept free but under watch for security.
