Hunza (APP): The people of Gilgit-Baltistan can earn very good revenue through taking care of wild life. If they will save their wild life then the government will give them the amount earned from trophy hunting.

This was stated by Program Manager Wild Life Conservation Society Mayor Khan while talking with APP here on Sunday said that every year several foreign hunters come to Pakistan and get the license for hunting wild life in different places. The govt charges them in dollars and the 70% amount goes to the local community and the remaining 30% goes to the government treasury.

He said that if the local people contribute more for saving their wild life then the number of foreign hunters will be increased and the revenue will also be increased. This will help to develop the community of that area.
