Poaching is often defined as unlawful hunting, almost as a subset of hunting, which it is not. Poaching is the illegal taking of wildlife. Poachers are not hunters - they are thieves. But often today, poaching and hunting are being confused in the public mind. Poachers act in complete disregard for conservation practices - and thusly, erroad the public trust in hunting altogether. Shane Mahoney, CEO of Conservation Visions, explains more in this brief podcast.

We know those 35-40 million people are harvesting a remarkable amount of food - in the billions of pounds. In addition to all the economic impacts hunting has, how are we as a society going to replace those billions of pounds of harvested protein each year?
