Excerpt from Photographing Wild Life Across the World
Big Game World. In particular does this apply to Africa, where animal life is disappearing at a rate that would astonish the most casual observer.
Last year I travelled from Cape Colony right up into the Congo, and although I was on the look-out all the way, did not see half a dozen animals throughout a journey of hundreds of miles. Only a few years ago this experience would have been impossible. Then eland, oryx and many other specie s of game abounded but wanton destruction has worked such pitiful havoc in the ranks of these interesting creatures that the naturalist may make a journey from Cape Town to Kimberley without seeing a single specimen, and is reduced to the unsatisfactory expedient of gathering all the information he can from ancient carvings (the work of unknown bushmen) on some rocks near Kimberley, or stuffed specimens in Museums.
