On 26 September, the House of Commons Library published a briefing which says that there is an ongoing debate about trophy hunting, its contribution to wildlife conservation and links to wildlife trafficking. Those opposed to trophy hunting are calling for a ban on imports of hunting trophies into the UK. It says that trophy hunting is legal as long as it complies with a country’s existing hunting legislation, including ensuring all proper permits have been obtained. Exports and imports of hunting trophies from endangered species must be licensed under CITES. Control on imports of hunting trophies by the EU were strengthened in 2015 to address concerns about links to wildlife trafficking.
