Texas Club Raising Funds to Preserve Endangered Species

Texas Club Raising Funds to Preserve Endangered Species

According to a latest report, the Texas club is raising funds in order to preserve an endangered species. For this purpose, they are aiming at auctioning off a license to kill them.

The Dallas Safari Club says that the sanction is among the other five permits given each year to allow people to kill black rhinos in Africa.

The permit is being auctioned off for the first time outside the country. John J. Jackson, the President of Conservation Force said, "50% of male rhinos are killed during their lifetime in fighting. 30% of females are killed during their lifetime in fighting, and a lot of that is by males that are post-reproduction".

According to the auction rules, one can hunt only one rhino after getting the license. The rules also claim that one can only kill the rhino, which is unable to reproduce in future. Also, the rhino to be killed should be aggressive towards its own species.

The Caldwell Zoo has been successful in breeding seven black rhinos. It has also worked a lot in order to preserve the black rhino population.

Jackson also said that the hunter buying the auction item will prove to be a hero in the conservation community.
