As part of the Company’s innovative, creative and effective three – pronged approach towards wildlife conservation i.e. protect the natural habitats, protect these habitats natural resources and provide humanitarian enhancement to the local communities in order to ensure that the hunting heritage is enjoyed by many generations to come, the companyis investing in community based projects such as building schools, providing educational materials, building health care facilities, clinging water wells and provides such facilities and services which minimize the completion for natural resources between the local communities and the wildlife population.

There is also the aspect of investing in personnel and facilities into joint patrols (Government, Company and Local Communities) in tracking the wildlife population and anti-poaching surveillance. This research survey and monitoring is likely to go on for several years in a hunting concession before animal populations are judged as healthy and a sustainable management plan and harvesting programme can be adopted and this is likely to be costly. The cost for promotion and maintaining the conservation efforts is quite high, therefore the company is to request the clients to pay a surcharge of 20% on their game fees to fund conservation and community development projects in and around the hunting concession area.
