Our investigators are currently involved in an extraordinary investigation that could blow the door wide open on the trophy hunting industry

by Eduardo Goncalves in Gosport, England, United Kingdom

It’s nearly 4 years since Cecil the lion was killed by an American dentist.

Despite the global furore it caused, trophy hunting hasn’t just continued…the numbers of lion trophies taken by hunters has actually INCREASED.

A few months ago, I helped launch the Campaign to Ban Trophy Hunting to finally OUTLAW this evil so-called ‘sport’.

In the short time since we started, we have:

  • REVEALED the huge numbers of elephant body parts, including ivory tusks, that are traded every year
  • EXPOSED some of the world’s biggest trophy hunters…including the only hunter ever to have killed more than 100 lions and 1000 elephants 
  • SHOWN how the trophy hunting industry lobbies international conservation organisations and peddles the lie that trophy hunting is ‘good for conservation’

CHEETAHS ARE KILLED FOR 'SPORT' BY TROPHY HUNTERS

We have shown the world how an extraordinary loophole in international law allows trophy hunters to kill THOUSANDS of lions, polar bears, zebras and other innocent animals – many of them threatened with extinction – every year just for ‘amusement’.

Our investigations are central to our work to EXPOSE & END the cruelty of trophy hunting. Our brave investigators often take great risks to reveal the truth.

And right now they – and the animals we’re working to defend – need YOUR help.

Our investigators are currently involved in an extraordinary investigation that could blow the door wide open on the industry. I can’t tell you the details for obvious reasons…but what I CAN tell you is that it could be the beginning of the end of this evil trade…

But to make this happen, we urgently need to raise £10,000. We’ve already managed to raise money to cover some of the costs of this investigation. But we won’t be able to complete what could be a decisive blow to the industry if we’re unable to find the remaining £10,000.

Please help us EXPOSE & END trophy hunting by making a donation to support our investigation today.

The Campaign to Ban Trophy Hunting is NOT just another one of those big charities with plush offices and a team of highly-paid executives. ALL of your donations go DIRECTLY to helping persecuted animals and to campaigning to force politicians to ACT.

On behalf of voiceless animals…THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT.

DESPITE BEING ENDANGERED, THOUSANDS OF LEOPARDS HAVE BEEN KILLED BY TROPHY HUNTERS

PS The Campaign to Ban Trophy Hunting is the ONLY organisation dedicated solely to bringing trophy hunting to a complete end. We have won the support of leading politicians and celebrities, taken to the streets, protested outside embassies, forced debates in parliament, met with government ministers, gathered thousands of petition signatures, and much more besides. Our investigations are ESSENTIAL if we are to force the politicians to act – and save thousands more animals from an agonising and unnecessary death in the name of ‘sport’.

PPS: As well as making a donation, you can get one of our beautiful and environmentally-friendly campaign t-shirts. Tell the world you are against trophy hunting and help support our work at the same time! Click here for details: https://campaigntobantrophyhunting.teemill.com/
