Stop Lion Trophy Hunting

Stop Lion Trophy Hunting


Why this is important

The lion population in Africa is being reduced at an alarming rate - 50 years ago there were 450,000 lions. Today as little as 20,000 remain. Lion Trophy Hunting, especially Canned Lion Hunting (where lions are shot in cages) are largely responsible for the dwindling lion population.

For the right price you can shoot a beautiful male lion, a lioness with cubs or even a lion cub - and this is done while they are in a cage and defenseless.

Canned Lion Hunting is not illegal in South Africa. The SA government also refuses to stop the issue of Lion Hunting permits.
