Odds and Ends

I think you hit the nail on the head with the problem of corruption being the key issue, plus that in many states too many rulers/leaders have little concern for the needs of their own people - which unfortunately speaking as a Brit isn't just a problem in Africa. Properly managed hunting can help if there are decent returns for the locals and its kept fairly limited, especially not too many of the big males being killed off it weakens the local herds/packs and their social structure too much. Unfortunately they do be the preferred targets of many game hunters. However killing more of the older and infirmed could actually be done with minimal damage to the overall conservation rates.
