HARARE Under Armour Speedform Shoes For Sale , Aug. 7 (Xinhua) -- Zimbabwe wildlife authorities said Thursday they are seeking to develop alternative tourism products following the suspension by the West of imports of sport-hunted elephant and lion trophies.


The United States in April banned imports of elephant trophies while Europe banned lion trophies from Zimbabwe. The Zimbabwean government has since decried the move, likening it to "sanctions on elephants."


Zimbabwe Parks and Wildlife Management Authority acting director for conservation Geoffreys Matipano told a parliamentary committee that the ban was going to negatively impact on the country's hunting revenue.


He said as a result, they were now shifting their focus towards such products as nonconsumptive tourism which he said would have huge revenue generation potential if well developed.


Matipano said unlike hunting, nonconsumptive tourism had a number of revenue sources such as game viewing Under Armour Curry Shoes For Sale , game drives, game walks and photographing.


Safari hunting generates substantial amounts for the nation, with revenues estimated to reach 75 million U.S. dollars this year, up 15 percent from last year. Visitors from the United States usually contributes about 85 percent of the safari revenues in Zimbabwe.


Meanwhile Under Armour Scorpio Shoes For Sale , Matipano said at least three wildlife poachers had been killed this year in two parks along the Zambezi river.


He said five elephants had so far this year died due to cyanide poisoning in the Zambezi National Park, a few months after the death of more than 100 elephants in similar circumstances in Hwange National Park in October last year.




NEW DELHI, Jan. 2 (Xinhua) -- The Indian Supreme Court on Monday sacked the country's powerful cricket board boss Anurag Thakur and his deputy Ajay Shirke as recommended by a committee formed two years ago to clean up the sports body.


A bench, headed by Chief Justice T.S. Thakur, said that all recommendations of the Lodha Committee must be implemented, which means that all cricket administrators above 70 years old will have to quit the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI).


According to the court ruling, an observer for the BCCI will be appointed in two weeks. Till then, the two senior vice presidents of the sports body will run the board's daily affairs.


The court did not stop there. It also issued a contempt notice to BCCI President Thakur, who is also a lawmaker of the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party, for allegedly making a false statement involving the International Cricket Council.


The landmark judgment came after months of a bitter legal tussle between the country's top court and the BCCI, the world's richest sports body.


The BCCI had been reluctant to implement the Lodha Committee's recommendations despite several reminders by the Supreme Court in its earlier hearings.


Former Chief Justice of India R.M. Lodha, who headed the Lodha Committee that was set up by the Supreme Court in January 2015, has welcomed the order, saying that "I am sure the game of cricket will be governed as well as ever."


"The Supreme Court order should work as a template for other sports organizations too," he told the media.


Both the sacked BCCI boss and his deputy have not yet reacted to the Supreme Court's order.
