Photo safaris trump trophy hunting - Conservation Action Trust | Volunteer in Africa | Scoop.it
In July, the illegal killing of Zimbabwe’s iconic lion Cecil re-ignited the debate over the desirability of trophy hunting in Africa. Supporters of the practice argue that it contributes significantly to the continent’s economy – particularly in impoverished rural areas – and helps to fund conservation efforts. But are these assertions actually true? In September,Read More

Countries where Trophy Hunting is Banned

Trophy hunting is currently banned in 12 range countries: Angola, Botswana, Congo, Gabon, Ghana, India, Kenya, Malawi, Mauritania, Niger, Nigeria, and Rwanda (CITES 2014, p. 14; Meena 2014, p. 26; Lindsey et al. 2013a, entire; Lindsey 2013, pers. comm.; Jackson 2013, pp. 7-8). In 1977, Kenya banned all sport hunting (Elliot and Mwangi 1998, p. 3). Botswana banned lion hunting between 2001 and 2004, and then again from 2008 to the present (Davison et al. 2011, p. 114). Benin imposed a 2-year moratorium, and CAR a 3-year moratorium, in the early 2000s (Lindsey et al. 2013a, p. 4). In January of 2013, Zambia placed a moratorium on sport hunting in 19 game management areas. While a few other game management areas and private game ranches in Zambia remain open for sport hunting for other species, the nationwide moratorium on sport hunting of cats remains in place (White 2015, pers. comm.; ABC News 2014, unpaginated; Flocken 2013, unpaginated). Trophy hunting is restricted to problem or dangerous animals in Ethiopia and Uganda (Lindsey 2008, p. 42). In our proposed rule, we had conflicting information regarding whether Cameroon had or has a lion hunting moratorium (CITES 2014, p. 14; Lindsey 2013, pers. comm.; Jackson 2013, p. 8). During the public comment period, a peer reviewer confirmed that Cameroon has not put a moratorium in place for lions, either in the past or present (Bauer 2015, pers. comm.). Additionally, Zimbabwe has suspended trophy hunting in the Gonarezhou area (Conservation Force 2015, pers. comm.).
