US Fish and Wildlife Service Allows Import of Lion Trophies from Zimbabwe and Zambia

by WOA Admin October 24, 2017

After evaluating the information that it had available,  the US Fish and Wildlife Service made the determination on October 20th  that the import of lion trophies from Zimbabwe and Zambia would meet the enhancement requirements of the Endangered Species Act.  This means that the Service found that hunting has enhanced the survival of the lion in these two south African countries.  The Service’s findings are for trophies taken in 2016, 2017, and 2018 and are for applicants who met all of the Service’s permitting requirements.  The Service will re-evaluate the hunting programs in Zimbabwe and Zambia in mid-2018 to determine if import permits can continue for 2019 and beyond.
