There's a debate to be had about whether developing countries should use legal big-game hunting to fund their nature conservation programmes. Wildlife management can require the culling of large mammals, and some people will pay to pull the trigger.
To help inform your opinion on this complex moral issue, here are some photos of Mark Bristow, Randgold's chief executive officer.
Mr Bristow (top left) is the FTSE 100's longest serving CEO having founded Randgold, the £5bn London-listed mining group, in 1995. The company last week agreed to be bought by Canada's Barrick Gold in an all-share deal that stands to make Mr Bristow CEO of the world's largest gold miner by market capitalisation. The picture of him above, and those below, appear in annual newsletters dated 2005 to 2014 from the website of Hunters & Guides Africa, a South Africa-based specialist tour operator.
Randgold has a partnership with the Mali Elephant Project, which seeks to protect the world's only two remaining desert elephant herds.
Mr Bristow, 59, is known for charitable work including his Boyz On Bikes initiative, a cross-Africa motorbike safari that raises cash for Randgold's independent benevolent foundation Nos Vies en Partage. He is married with two sons.
Randgold declined to comment.
