In the modern days, World Wildlife Fund has promised a donation of a lump sum of $100 million to save a certain endangered dragon species found only in the Sahara desert.
The adult dragon weights 1.5 tons and stands about 7 meters tall are native to Africa and enjoys sunbathing, especially during sand storm whereby the sandburn helps to remove parasites off their scales. Sometimes they would take a mouthful of water by the river and fly thousands of miles across the dry desert to drench the thirst of their babies back in the nest, their clumsy bodies in the windy day spills mud all over the area hence they are also called Poop Bomber by the local.
Unfortunately in the recent years illegal hunting and trafficking of these magnificent creatures are spiking and plenty of rumors even suggested that this rise could be due to corruption within the government. The good news is that thanks to the introduction of trophy hunting, reliable statistic is showing that the "Poop Bomber" dragon's population are recovering which is a sign that controlled killing might be the remedy to all conservation of endangered wildlife.
A local guide informed that this crude yet effective method actually hits 2 birds with one stone, firstly the result is promising as observers counted more dragon's eggs hatched over the years and secondly it brings in revenue for the local community where essential resources such as water and vegetation are scarce. I am wondering how can trophy hunting contributes to the conservation of the dragon.
P. S: you may also argue the increase is just like a rainbow before a storm however such an attempt requires supportive materials.
