Trophy Hunters are killing THOUSANDS of some of the most beautiful and ENDANGERED animals every year - just for FUN. They include TIGERS bred on farms and then shot in ENCLOSURES they cannot escape from.

The Campaign to Ban Trophy Hunting

We are a non-profit organisation dedicated to saving innocent animals from the cruel and barbaric practice of trophy hunting. We are a team of passionate individuals who believe that ALL animals have the right to live in peace in their natural habitats without fear of being hunted for so-called 'sport'.

Our Mission

Our mission is to put an end to trophy hunting by raising awareness, exposing the industry's sick secrets and campaigning for changes in policies that allow sick trophy hunters to carry on killing animals for pleasure.

Our Accomplishements

We are at the forefront of the fight to end trophy hunting. We have built a global coalition of conservation and animal welfare groups, conservationists and scientists, and African community leaders. Thanks to our amazing supporters, we persuaded BOTH the Conservative and Labour Parties in the UK to pledge to BAN British hunters from bringing home their sick trophies. We then persuaded the Conservative government to draft a bill to implement the ban. The bill passed ALL of its stages in the House of Commons UNANIMOUSLY. It was blocked however by a tiny group of unelected Lords, most of them hunters, and then ran out of time. We are not campaigning to bring back the bill ASAP - and to stop unelected hunters thwarting the will of the people.

The Saving Sally film

Saving Sally is a groundbreaking film that exposes the brutal world of trophy hunting. Produced by the Campaign to Ban Trophy Hunting, this film follows an undercover investigation into the rearing of tiger cubs for trophy hunters to shoot in enclosures. It also tells the extraordinary story of the group's attempt to rescue a young tiger called Sally from their clutches.

THE UK Bill to Ban Trophy Hunting Imports


Many British trophy hunters travel to Africa and other countries to shoot some of the world's most beautiful and endangered species for trophies. This has contributed to a significant decline and threatened the survival of species such as Lions and Leopards.

THE UK Bill to Ban Trophy Hunting Imports

We persuaded the Government to bring forward a bill to ban hunting trophies coming in to the UK. It passed UNANIMOUSLY in the House of Commons - before being BLOCKED by a tiny group of Lords with links to the hunting industry. Backbench MPs are now bringing the bill back to Parliament. It is VITAL that the Government supports the new bill and STOPS unelected Lords from thwarting British democracy.

Trophy hunting is utterly cruel, utterly unnecessary and utterly disastrous from a conservation perspective. It inflicts pain and suffering on animals for no other reason other than to boast of some ephemeral ‘prowess’. There is no material human need met by it: it is a hobby, pure and simple, and a deeply wrong one at that.


I have always considered trophy hunting the lowest of the low: contemptible, hollow triumphalism which we would laugh to scorn if the consequences weren’t so utterly grim and cruel. Weasel words and twisted evidence will try to show the benefits of this hateful past-time; but the truth is as plain as can be: killing animals for fun is just disgusting.

I’m appalled and disgusted by this so-called ‘sport’. I have been lucky enough to visit Africa many times and see these beautiful wild animals. I would like my grandchildren to be able to do the same someday.


I believe that the pastime of trophy hunting is one of the vilest and cruellest so-called sports that there is. The idea that a person can go out and for pleasure shoot and maim a proud wild animal is wholly unacceptable. To then allow the importation of the product of that slaughter is worse.


As a conservationist, and as someone directly involved in working to save persecuted species, I can say from first-hand experience that hunting for ‘sport’ is putting tremendous pressure on our wildlife. Trophy hunting is simply inexplicable and inexcusable, and those who practice it need to take a long, hard look at themselves and what they’re doing. Frankly, they are absolutely despicable in my view.


Trophy hunting has had its ugly day in the sun. It’s not a sport, in sport, there is fair competition, here the animals die and the humans sit on their corpses for a selfie. Trophy hunting is about killing wildlife and when more and more species are heading toward the brink of extinction it’s no longer ethically or morally acceptable.
