    photo safaris

    "photo safaris" seems to mean a place where you can take photos of wild animals, and in this context, it was used as a means to preserve the population of rhinos. What exactly is "photo safari"?

    ex)...This was done during the 1980s and 1990s in the southern African nation of Zimbabwe...Revenues came both from hunting many big game animals and from nonconsumptive uses of wildlife, such as photo safaris. Under these rules, the black rhino population climbed dramatically...

    Re: photo safaris

    You're basically right. It's a safari (a holiday where you can watch wild animals, particularly in Africa) but with the emphasis on taking photographs. Of course, most people who go on safari take some photos anyway, but the photo safaris were particularly for keen amateur and professional photographers and raised a lot of money. That meant that the game parks could earn more money without having to rely on hunting which of course, while bringing in money, also disastrously damages the population of the animal.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    A safari is a journey or expedition.
