Hunting is not always bad. Regulated pursuit and take of wild animals can actually be an effective wildlife management tool. We discuss this matter with Kika Worldwide’s founder, Jake Franklin.
Animals in captivity is a double-edged sword. While we must preserve certain species in zoos to protect them from extinction, it’s not always the easiest choice. Here we take a neutral look at the ethics of zoos.
