The population of big game animals classified under section 92 of the Wildlife Management and Conservation Act 2013 (in the context of this research, rhinos, lions and elephants) have been on the decline over the past couple of years due to illegal wildlife poaching in spite of the efforts made by the government to combat it. However, in Southern African countries such as South Africa, Zimbabwe, Namibia and Tanzania, they seem to have adopted trophy hunting as a sustainable means of combating illegal wildlife poaching and conservation of these endangered animals. The questions that therefore arise are whether trophy hunting of these endangered species will save them from extinction and whether this method is sustainable for conservation of these species.
