"Killing animals for pleasure is cruel, unnecessary, and has no place in a civilised society."

 

The Campaign to Ban Trophy Hunting (CBTH) was set up in 2018 by former League Against Cruel Sports CEO Eduardo Goncalves, former WWF International Director Jean-Paul Jeanrenaud, legendary explorer Sir Ranulph Fiennes OBE, and actor and leading animal advocate Peter Egan.

 

The campaign is Britain’s and the world’s leading organisation working to abolish ALL Trophy Hunting and since its launch they have been fighting to persuade the British government to stop hunters from bringing home the trophies of defenceless animals they’ve killed for “sport” back into the country.

 

It may come as a surprise to many to learn that our government has allowed hunters to bring home hundreds of trophies of endangered animals and has even permitted several tons of ivory from elephants killed by British hunters to be imported. Also, the number of lion trophies coming into Britain has actually increased since the global outcry over the killing of Cecil the lion.

 

The government has now pledged to ban trophies of all threatened, vulnerable and endangered animals. This is a huge step in the right direction, and they / we are currently awaiting a date for the bill to be introduced to Parliament.

 

OAT have provided funding in support of this vital campaign for a few years now and we will continue to do so until this abhorrent practice becomes a thing of the past.  Humans have no right to take the life of an animal for recreation. Studies suggest at least 50% of animals shot by Trophy Hunters are not killed instantly and instead die slow painful deaths and killing endangered wildlife for pleasure only helps push them even further towards extinction.

What CBTH does

CBTH campaigns for:​​

  • Governments to ban trophy hunting and the import and export of hunting trophies
