Tourism Without Trophy Hunting
Trophy hunters pursue wildlife in head-hunting gambits, often seeking to kill among the rarest, most majestic creatures throughout the world. Threatened and endangered wildlife including elephants, rhinos, lions, leopards, wolves, and grizzly bears are among their targets. In some cases, trophy hunters shoot animals in captive settings.
We want to stop this awful practice of globe-trotting trophy hunting. Wildlife tourism is immensely larger than trophy hunting when it comes to numbers of participants and total revenues, yet some countries try to have both – even though trophy hunting undermines tourism by shrinking the number of animals and making survivors warier.
