Every year, hundreds of thousands of wild animals, representing hundreds of different species, are slain by trophy hunters. Join our online community to help end this cruel, environmentally destructive practice.

Trophy hunters kill animals for the purpose of obtaining a "prize"—from horns, to tusks, to the whole animal, stuffed—to take home and hang on a wall or pose in a living room. Despite its cruelty and harm to wildlife populations, many countries permit trophy hunting. Few monitor the activity accurately enough to understand its impact.

HSI is working to demonstrate to policy-makers the damage caused by trophy hunting and to encourage economic alternatives, such as ecotourism, which can employ more people and bring in more income without such a high cost to animals.
