A consultation and a call for evidence have been launched to gather views and expert evidence on trophy hunting.
The Government today (Saturday 2 November) launched a consultation on options to restrict the imports and exports of hunting trophies to the UK - including a potential ban.
The 12-week consultation will close on Saturday 25 January 2020. The four main options being consulted on are:
- A ban on the import and export of hunting trophies from certain species
- Stricter requirements to demonstrate clear benefits to conservation and local communities before hunting trophies from certain species are permitted to enter or leave the UK
- A ban on all hunting trophies entering or leaving the UK
- Continuing to apply current controls based on internationally agreed rules.
