    The Wild Harvest Initiative Explained by Shane Mahoney

    The Wild Harvest Initiative Explained by Shane Mahoney

    Do you ever think about where your food comes from? How it was procured? Hunters and anglers know EXACTLY where their food comes from - while not everyone personally chooses to hunt or fish, we can agree that these activities do procure a significant amount of healthy, organic rich food by humans. And not just the people who got the food to begin with - neighbors, friends and even shelters benefit from this protein source. What would it cost to replace that protein source? What it is worth economically, nutritionally, socially? The Wild Harvest Initiative® will provide empirical answers to these questions. This is also a YouTube video found here:  Learn more about Conservation Visions at  Follow us on Facebook at  and on instagram at

Excellent.

I had to write an entire essay reviewing this podcast and after in depth analysis I can say without a doubt that this podcast is truly amazing.

Cecil episode

Hi Shane,
You start your conversation referring to Cecil as a Tanzanian lion, he was in fact Zimbabwean, murdered during an illegal hunt.

It’s really important to get your facts correct when discussing things like this. I was all keen to listen to your podcast, but the first sentence is misleading in the most egregious way , this has detrimental consequences for all sorts of reasons.

I am from Zimbabwe and had the pleasure of filming Cecil and Jericho over many years for different documentaries. He was born and died in Hwange National Park.

When I have the time to listen to the rest, I will hopefully find factual and compelling arguments about the issue’s surrounding his untimely and quite frankly inhumane death.
