March to stop Lion Trophy Hunting, April 2016

On Saturday the 30th April 2016, I joined the March against Lion Trophy Hunting through the tourist-filled streets of London in a call to end the imports of trophies into the UK. Hunting for trophies was first started by big-game hunters from the UK many decades ago, and it is about time we joined Australia, France, and the Netherlands in banning imports. Stopping the very thing that feeds the hunters ego and lust, the trophy, is a way to help starve the demand and therefore supply.

Organised by six charities (list and links below), the day was a fantastic success as representatives delivered a signed letter to PM Cameron while about 500 campaigners stood across from Downing Street, making their voices heard.

A big thank you to these charities involved. Please donate where you can and support their various campaigns
