Around 90% of #African #elephants have been killed in the past century.
20,000🐘🐘 killed each year for ivory. We urge Zimbabwe Botswana & Namibia Govts to halt plans to permit hunting of their elephants.

#American trophy hunters pay big #money to kill animals overseas and import over 126,000 wildlife trophies per year on average. The US Govt must ban the import of trophy hunting body parts.

Trophy hunting doesn’t benefit wildlife conservation. Less than 3% of money goes into community or into conservation programs. Mostly income goes to Govt agencies, outfitters & individuals located in Nat. capitals & tourism ind in US.

Trophy hunting doesn’t benefit the local #economy to any significant degree.
Total economic contribution from their hunting-related & non-hunting related tourism is about 0.03% of GDP (2017).

Organised hunting of endangered #wildlife including elephants, lions & rhinos, mostly benefits wealthy white landowners whilst exploiting black workers, paying them “pitiful” wages.

Trophy hunters not only cause injury & suffering to the animals, also destroy their families & habitats, leaving the babies to starve to death. Animals cannot defend themselves from bullets, traps & other killing devices.

Elephant habitats have been fragmented & destroyed as humans have encroached upon their habitat eg building roads, mines and plantations through their lands. This destruction has led to increasing human elephant conflict. #bantrophyhunting @moefcc @edmnangagwa @hagegeingob pic.twitter.com/Uj4m5yZI4K

La France autorise la chasse aux trophées et l’import.
L’ACP organise des safaris en Afrique.
@EmmanuelMacron engagez-vous à interdire l’import des trophées de tous types en France ainsi que la promotion de cette chasse.

Canned lion hunting is when lions are bred specifically to be shot and stuffed. They cannot escape and are a guaranteed kill. US has numerous venues with exotic animals that offer canned hunting packages. #bantrophyhunting @RepGregoryMeeks @POTUS

A study found a live elephant may be worth as much as $1.6m over its lifetime through income from photographic tourism – many times the fee typically paid by a trophy hunter to shoot an elephant. #bantrophyhunting @BornFreeFDN @USDA_APHIS pic.twitter.com/DsqlTmOPRR

Between 2006 and 2015, trophy hunters legally imported 3,744 giraffes hunting trophies to the USA, the equivalent of more than 1 giraffe per day. Giraffes must be added to the ESA #bantrophyhunting @PETA @waza @NRDems @RepGregoryMeeks @CITES pic.twitter.com/WbQb0hRATL

89% Conservative voters agree that the government should ban hunters from bringing back trophies. British Govt should also ban all trophy hunting travel companies from advertising to British holidaymakers. #bantrophyhunting @BorisJohnson @CBTHunting pic.twitter.com/thvUnKpzP3

Glamorizing the killing an elephant for entertainment & displaying part of its body parts is grotesque. Also animals can be chased for long periods of time, separated from family, wounded and face much pain & suffering. #bantropyhunting @NRA @BorisJohnson @HouseForeign@NRDems pic.twitter.com/Lq9RepeUsF
