Tell the Botswana government to say NO to lifting the ban on trophy hunting
In 2014, Botswana made a historic move by banning trophy hunting. Now the country is considering reversing the trophy hunting ban by creating laws to help trophy hunting grow throughout the country. Botswana is also considering instituting regular elephant culling in a misguided attempt to manage their elephant populations and to use the elephant meat as pet food. This backwards thinking will threaten the country’s imperiled species, such as elephants, rhinos and leopards, who are struggling to survive intense pressures from poaching, habitat loss and human-wildlife conflict.
