“If CITES does not really help us to conserve our wild animals, but frustrating those that are doing good, I think there is no need for us to stay in CITES,” Shifeta said.

Best thing we could do, the way it is going....

I doubt if I ever hunt an elephant or a rhino, but I am all for the "have countries" exiting! And staying out!

It might be a wake-up call for CITES, but unfortunately other countries can still impose sanctions on trophy imports. I could see the fools in the US even restricting travel or hunting for US citizens if they want to make the point that they control the CITES agenda, not African countries.

Before they leave and have it do U.S hunters any good, there would have to be some kind of favorable importation rulings by the USF&WL specifically for these countries.

USF&W hierarchy is too politicized to do much about Africa. Their record speaks for itself.

I think leaving CITES could be a great thing for African wildlife, but I don’t see it helping American hunters at all. The attitude here seems to be that we can bully other countries into accepting our terms, but if they can no longer get away with that they’ll find another way to interfere in wildlife management. That means interfering with hunters directly. Tree huggers never quit.

Curious if any native North American animals come under the CITES convention.
