Please join us on Monday 20th February at 19.00 GMT for a presentation by Eduardo Gonçalves, the founder of the Campaign to Ban Trophy Hunting.
On March 17, MPs will debate a bill which proposes to ban British hunters from bringing home the heads and bodies of animals they have shot abroad for ‘sport’.
It follows a 4-year campaign by Eduardo Goncalves, founder of the Campaign to Ban Trophy Hunting.
The bill is in danger of being blocked, however. March 17 is a Friday – a day most MPs are in their constituencies. It will not pass if there are not enough MPs in the chamber. Moreover, the American gun lobby is trying to stop the bill – because it interferes with what they say are “hunters’ rights”.
Over 20 of Britain’s leading wildlife charities and animal welfare groups are now calling on MPs to make an exception and come to Parliament on Friday 17 March.
In his talk, Eduardo will reveal how British trophy hunters are responsible for shooting some of the world’s most endangered animals, and are winning prizes from the American gun lobby for single handedly shooting hundreds of animals.
He will show a short film about the attempted rescue of a young tiger cub that had been hand-reared to become a hunter’s trophy – and show how we can help make this historic ban law.
Time: Monday 20th Feb 2023 – 19:00 GMT
