The Shocking Truth

Every 3 minutes, a defenceless animal is killed by a Trophy Hunter. They include some of the world’s most endangered species. Lions could go extinct by 2050. There are just 50 ‘Big Tusker’ elephants left, the population of Leopards is unknown, and there are fewer than 7,000 Cheetahs and only 3,000 Black Rhinos left. Giraffes are now endangered, and Polar Bears are already facing extinction thanks to climate change. It’s time to STOP THE SLAUGHTER – Before it’s TOO LATE.

Help us STOP the Slaughter

The Campaign to Ban Trophy Hunting is Britain’s and the world’s leading organisation working to abolish ALL Trophy Hunting.

Since launching in 2018, we have been fighting to persuade the British government to stop hunters bringing home the defenceless animals they’ve killed for ‘sport’ into the country.

Our cutting-edge investigations and hard-hitting campaigns have won the support of top conservationists, African leaders, national newspapers, politicians of every party, and some of Britain’s most respected public figures.

A message from Sir Ranulph Fiennes

"We’ve got to stop ALL trophy hunting. The hunting industry, funded by gun manufacturers, is lobbying furiously to protect “hunter’s rights”. We can only defeat them – and save animals’ lives - with your help. Your donation will make a real difference"

A message from Lorraine Kelly

"I have been lucky enough to visit Africa and see these beautiful animals. I would like my grandchildren to be able to do the same someday. Please support the campaign to Ban Trophy Hunting"

TROPHY HUNTING  IS DRIVING WILDLIFE TO EXTINCTION

Hunters have shot 50,000 polar bears in recent years – many of them for trophies. Now there are just 20,000 left. It’s time to make a stand against polar bear hunting.

Thousands of cheetahs have been shot in recent years. They’ve vanished from 98% of their range. Now there are fewer than 7,000 left in the wild.

There were once millions of rhinos in Africa. Now there are fewer than 30,000. Help us to ban trophy hunting – and give all rhinos a future free from fear.

What our supporters say about Trophy Hunting

BILL BAILEY

Trophy hunting really is the lowest of the low. These people, these wealthy sadists, get on a plane and pay huge sums of money with the sole intention of killing as many animals as they can, and then they get a prize for it. I find it staggering that the government allows trophy hunters to bring these sick souvenirs into the country. I find it equally staggering that it allows foreign hunters to come to the UK to shoot animals here and take their trophies away with them. We need a blanket ban. We need to put an end to this grotesque barbarism.

BILL ODDIE

Some of the world’s most extraordinary wildlife has been decimated by persecution and habitat loss. Elephants, lions, leopards, cheetahs and rhinos are all fighting for their lives. We could see all of them go extinct within a generation. Letting people kill them because they think it’s entertaining is just insane, especially when you’re talking about wildlife with such a vulnerable status. Trophy hunting has always been senseless cruelty.

CHRIS PACKHAM

Trophy hunting has had its ugly day in the sun. It’s not a sport. In sport, there is fair competition, here the animals die, and the humans sit on their corpses for a selfie. Trophy hunting is about killing wildlife, and when more and more species are heading towards the brink of extinction, it’s no longer ethically or morally acceptable.

JANE GOODALL

Trophy hunting is utterly cruel, utterly unnecessary and utterly disastrous from a conservation perspective. It inflicts pain and suffering on animals for no other reason other than to boast of some ephemeral ‘prowess’. There is no material human need met by it: it is a hobby, pure and simple, and a deeply wrong one at that.

KEVIN PIETERSEN

Trophy hunters are not conservationists. They are people who kill animals for fun. They then make up excuses to try and justify their so-called ‘sport’. If trophy hunting was good for conservation, why have lion populations fallen from 450,000 in the 1950s to just 20,000 today? Why have elephant numbers fallen from over 1 million in the 1980s to just 400,000 today? Why are rhinos, cheetahs, leopards, hippos and giraffes ALL in serious trouble?

CAROL VORDERMAN

The numbers don’t lie: trophy hunters are slaughtering thousands of animals every year, and wildlife populations are plummeting. It doesn’t take a genius to work out that the hunters’ claims that it’s good for ‘conservation’ are illogical. We need action by the government to stop this terrible trade and to help bring a worldwide end to all trophy hunting.

Help us Expose and End Trophy Hunting

We rely on the generosity of decent people like YOU who agree with us that it is simply WRONG in this day and age to kill animals just for the thrill of it and to be able to brag about it.
