Yeah, assuming that some level of culling/harvesting/slaughter is either desirable or at least non-damaging, selling a hunt to raise funds for conservation seems like a non-bad idea. Thelma's point about if the gives a rat-ass is missing that he likely doesn't give a rats-ass, but nonetheless contributed some portion of $400,000 to the cause anyway.
