Ban Trophy Hunting

Ban Trophy Hunting

Help end this barbaric sport

Trophy hunting is the killing of an animal for sport or pleasure in order to display part or all of their bodies as trophies.

Tragically, many wild animals are needlessly killed by trophy hunters every day. Nearly 300,000 trophy items were exported across the world between 2008 and 2017, according to the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species. Among these were nearly 40,000 trophy items from African elephants, just over 8,000 from leopards, and 14,000 from African lions.

Born Free is opposed to the killing of any animal for sport or pleasure, and we want trophy hunting banned.

Together we can end this barbaric sport. Your gift will help us campaign for an end to the practice, work with airlines and shipping companies to ban the transportation of trophies, and put pressure on the UK and other governments to introduce a ban on the import of hunting trophies.
