Following the completion of RIRDC project UQ95A “Safari Hunting of Australian Wild Exotic Game” we initiated this project to realise the most important of our recommendations for the future of the professional safari hunting industry: “Establish a peak commercial hunting body in Australia as soon as is practicable”. This recommendation was based on our information that the industry had difficulties in obtaining appropriate liability insurance, with non-uniform firearms laws, with the presence of undisciplined people in the industry, and with lack sympathetic recognition by governments and the wider tourism industry.
