Campaign to Ban Trophy Hunting

Trophy Hunting:

Ira Pastor comments:

The critically most endangered wildlife at risk

However, a loophole in CITES, allows trophy hunters to kill even the most critically endangered wildlife. A poacher cannot kill an elephant to sell its tusks. But a trophy hunter can kill the same elephant and take the same tusks. Eduardo Goncalves, is Founder of the Campaign to Ban Trophy Hunting, a non-profit group that believes trophy hunting is cruel, archaic, immoral and unjustified, can inflict significant pain and suffering, undermines genuine conservation, and brings no real benefits to local communities.

Objectives of Campaign to Ban Trophy Hunting

Campaign to Ban Trophy Hunting wants to see an immediate halt to the trade in trophies of vulnerable or threatened species, calls on governments to ban trophy hunting and imports/exports of hunting trophies, and believes there should be a comprehensive global agreement banning trophy hunting, with proper enforcement and penalties.

Mr. Goncalves’ wide-ranging career includes spells as a House of Commons researcher, a radio presenter, an investigative journalist, and as the director of a government department in UAE.
