Consultation and call for evidence on controls on the import and export of hunting trophies

Thursday 07 November 2019

The Queen’s Speech on 14 October 2019 set out the Department of Environment Food & Rural Affairs (DEFRA) commitment to the protection and improving the environment for future generations, which included bringing forward proposals to ban imports from trophy hunting.

DEFRA is now seeking input on this as well as consulting on future policy options and has issued a call for evidence on the scale and impacts of the import and export of hunting trophies.

The consultation and call for evidence will provide an opportunity for views and supply of evidence to inform aspects of government policy and action on the import and export of hunting trophies. The consultation does not extend to whether the practice of trophy hunting should be banned, nor does it cover the domestic sale or possession of hunting trophies.
