    I wonder if down the road, the countries that will suffer economic and wildlife loss will be able to sue the British Government for their negligent actions. NEGLIGENT actions are a lot different than a simple mistake.

    "How can someone possibly take away a cultural heritage?”




    Part two of our collaborative project with Blood Origins features Prof. Patience Gandiwa, the International Conservation Affairs Director for Zimparks. Patience is not afraid to speak her mind when it comes to wildlife conservation in Zimbabwe. What if the communities on the ground had a voice to tell DEFRA what they think about the proposed ban of trophy imports? Well ... here is their voice!

    If Hunting Is Banned In Africa, It Will Not Save Wildlife.




    George Pangeti, Africa Coordinator for SCI Foundation and whom calls Zimbabwe home responds to the proposed trophy ban in the UK. "Instead of listening to the foreign press of non-hunting NGO’s, they are welcome to visit our region…to see how hunting is making people survive. If it is banned and there is no income from hunting, it is not helping wildlife. In fact, it is going to kill wildlife."

    It Is Incumbent Upon Countries To Engage African Countries In The Conversation About Banning Hunting




    "We believe very strongly any move to ban hunting resources would be counterproductive....because those resources play an important part in the development of our people." Dr. Cyril Taolo is the Acting Director of the Department of Wildlife and National Parks in Botswana and he is speaking out against the proposed ban of trophy imports in the UK. He stresses the necessity of the UK's DEFRA and other countries considering similar moves, to engage those African regions and understand the role hunting plays.

    "We Grew Up With These Species. We Know Better How To Conserve Them."




    Geoffreys Matipano, Deputy Director General, Conservation for ZimParks in Zimbabwe responds to the proposed UK ban of trophy imports. "Outside of Africa, the Western world, they know better how to conserve species like caribou, like hogs, but when it comes to African elephant, African buffalo, it's us, we've been dealing with these species our whole life."
