Instead of running 13 miles (as scheduled) I thought my time would be best spent running 6 miles to the Global March for Elephants and Rhinos against extinction and trophy hunting. 🐘🦏
Trophy hunting is wrong. There are no two ways about it. 😠
What sick coward would want to shoot a wild animal for ‘fun’? These people pay to be driven within shooting range of endangered animals who are often sleeping / protecting their young when they’re shot. It’s not brave and it’s not sport! ☹️
& despite reports, less than 3% of the money these ‘hunters’ pay actually helps conservation / local communities due to rampant corruption and poorly managed wildlife programmes.
Safari / photography tourism is worth far more to local communities than trophy hunting. 📷 🦁
We call on the government to take a stand and permanently ban the import of hunting trophies from all endangered species. 🦒 🐃 🦁 🐘 🦏
