He was also awarded by an animal protection group, The Humane Society International. In order to thank Ricky Gervais for his efforts, they said:

“The fight against trophy hunting… has become tougher over the past two years… But there is also much to celebrate… With prominent individuals like Ricky Gervais….embracing our cause, the wind is at our backs.”

    Ricky Gervais is a funny guy but when it comes to hunting, he is sadly ignorant. In South Africa, 40 million acres of conservation farms are supported by hunting. They produce more than 100,000 TONS of red meat a year by harvesting 1.2 million animals out of the 16 -20 million on those farms. All of the animals are INCREASING in number and thanks to the farmers and hunters, they will never become extinct. Trophy hunters take a trophy from about 0.02% of those animals but nothing is wasted – the meat and by-products all get used. It is a modern farming industry and the wildlife industry in SA employs 100,000 people.
    Trophy hunting has changed since Victorian times, by Gervais doesn’t seem to know. In South Africa and the SADC region, it is very carefully controlled by government, scientists, vets and wildlife field managers. The animals belong to Africans and foreigners have no right to interfere just to make themselves more famous.
