Hey guys, I recently ran across a website for a bowhunting safari company in Zimbabwe and Nigeria. They provide 'outings' for bowhunters ann allow them to kill animals such as White Rhino, Lion, Leopard, Elephant, Dik-diks, Jackals, Zebra, as well as many other kinds of animals.

My question is - how is this legal? Is it? If not, what steps do we take to stop this?

Poaching and animal welfare are VERY important subjects to me so if youre interested in helping me with this, please let me know!
Thanks sooooooo much guys. Im calling those numbers as soon as Im off work. I want this stopped!

    I don’t know what Africa’s laws and regulations are. It is very possible that the website may be operating illegally. One animal over in Africa that is on your list (the elephant), I know is not suppose to be hunted. If you want some more information, you might contact the American Embassies in both of these countries since they do speak English and it’s very possible that there will be translating needed.

    I would think this is very illegal. I guess if I was you I’d contact the world wildlife fund at

    Here’s some phone numbers and email addys I found for ya, try emailing them, and ask how to report it and ask if it’s legal or not.
