Hunters and watchers of wildlife do not always cooperate, but they need to. Conflicts divert attention from threats to all, like climate change. Using renewable resources sustainably is not different from using farmed produce, but often better for conserving nature. As you can read on this site, hunting, farming and other uses of natural resources can be solutions for conservation and the threats from global warming. However, if blue-green and red-green make politics with hunting, farming and climate change, the future is black. We need to focus together on solutions, based both on technology that creates new livelihoods and on nature itself.
For example, in 2004, an agreement to cooperate was signed in Europe between representatives of government, hunting and bird-watching. There are similar agreements at global level for migratory birds, such as the Saker Falcon. All the groups concerned are prominent among 1300 organisations in our International Union for Conservation of Nature, which represents nature conservation at the United Nations. Our network is run to encourage conservation by all who benefit from wild living resources.
