The Campaign to Ban Trophy Hunting also met with Environment Minister Michael Gove on Wednesday 15th May to discuss a ban on hunting trophy imports.
Together with our colleagues from Lion Aid and the Born Free Foundation, we made a great start on the topic, and reached consensus on the issue of canned lions, there will be further meetings to discuss this issue.
Thanks to your support, we have been able to create HUGE MOMENTUM in support of a ban. It is vital we seize this opportunity to press our case.
