Verbied trofeejag

Organisasies pleit by CITES


’n Groep bewaringsaktiviste, onder wie 50 lede van die Europese Parlement en meer as 30 nieregeringsorganisasies (NRO’s), het Dinsdag ’n brief aan die sekretarisgeneraal van die Verenigde Nasies se konvensie oor die internasionale handel in bedreigde spesies (Cites) oorhandig waarin hulle vra dat trofeejag wêreldwyd verbied moet word.


Die Europese Parlement-lede en die NRO’s, onder wie Action for Animals, Animal Aid, Four Paws International, Ivory Free Canada Coalition en die Suid-Afrikaanse Ban Animal Trading, Blood Lions, Captured in Africa, Four Paws Suid-Afrika, Green Girls in Africa en Voice for Lions, vra Ivonne Higuero, nuwe sekretaris-generaal, in die brief om ’n verbod te plaas op trofeejag omdat bedreigde spesies uitsterf.
