The importation of trophies from big game hunting in foreign countries is controversial and should be limited. Ensuring that trophies from African lions and at-risk species proposed for Endangered Species Act (ESA) listing can’t be brought into the U.S. will help protect endangered animals and help contain public outrage about Americans hunting for sport abroad.
By limiting the importation of trophies from species proposed, but not placed, on the Endangered Species Act, this bill would severely restrict Americans’ ability to hunt for sport abroad and bring their trophies home. In doing this, this bill could potentially harm the conservation cause by reducing the Fish and Wildlife Services’ revenue from hunters, which helps fund conservation.
