Quotes of Note: Please Mr. Roosevelt, Tell Us How you Really Feel…

Gordale Scar

“Cattle-men hate sheep, because they eat the grass so close that cattle cannot live on the same ground. The sheepherders are a…melancholy set of men…with no companionship except that of the bleating idiots they are hired to guard. Intellectually a sheep is about the lowest level of brute creation; why the early Christians admired [the sheep]…is to a good cattle-man a profound mystery.” (T. Roosevelt; Hunting Trips of a Ranchman)

Mark Haldane of Zambeze Delta Safaris on Hunting and Conservation in Africa – Dallas Safari Club

OK, so Frances and I got to interview many super stars in our industry – Craig Boddington, Jérôme Lanoue of L’Atelier Verney-Carron, etc – at the Dallas Safari Club Convention, but no one is a bigger super star than Mark Haldane of Zambezi Delta Safaris.
 
Mark isn’t just a Professional Hunter, he is a conservationist par excellence, and a humanitarian. He believes that to conserve ecosystems you MUST involve the local people.
 
Check out the results from our interview of a conservationist/humanitarian here.
