The tourism in Africa is majorly affected by poaching Poaching kills the animals making it less likely to see one on a safari. They also scare away the tourists themselves because the tourists don’t want to be held up by poachers. The governments of Africa need the tourism for the money it generates.
Extinction is more important then tourism because: › If there are no more animals no more tourism › It will cause an ecosystem collapse Most Africans rely on these animals for money. Without money, many Africans will starve.
You should feel sorry for the animals and the Africans › The animals are directly affected by the poaching because they are getting killed › The Africans are indirectly affected because they rely on these animals for a income so they can live › It is a source of money for the governments so they need it to function and fund things
The significant causes of poaching are bush meat and the Chinese. The less important impact is lowering tourism. The more important impact is the possible extinction of entire species.
