Trophy hunting and #tech4wildlife

Hello all,


I just came upon a paper titled "Complementary benefits of tourism and hunting to communal conservancies in Namibia". This paper focused on the joint benefits of trophy hunting and ecotourism.  After reading it, I wonder how using technology for wildlife conservation would impact trophy hunting? I could see using better reporting and management systems to keep track of willdlife populations and movements. Perhaps even having automated sensors to monitor environmental conditions such as drought, humidity, etc. What are your thoughts?
