Consultation description

We are seeking evidence on the impacts of trophy hunting and the import and export of hunting trophies to and from the UK. In particular, we’re looking to understand:

  • the number of hunting trophies entering and leaving the UK
  • the effect of stricter controls on UK businesses
  • effects of trophy hunting
  • existing restrictions in other countries

This call for evidence is being held at the same time as our consultation on controls of the import and export of hunting trophies. We will use the information from both to determine whether further action is required.

Update: The closing closing date has been extended by 1 month to 25 February 2020.
