Namibian Government Formally Embraces Hunting

posted on March 11, 2016

Alarmed over massive anti-hunter response to its 2013 decision to sell five black rhino hunts for trophy hunting in efforts to raise funds to help save the endangered species, the Namibian government is taking steps to make sure that hunter haters don’t gain more of a foothold there.

As our good friend Karen Mehall Phillips at American Hunter reports, Namibia’s Ministry of Environment and Tourism has said it will officially oppose any calls to restrict hunting and export wildlife products. According to All Africa, the cabinet voted to go on the record as a pro-hunting nation, opposing any and all hunting bans—and to campaign against any bans proposed in the future.

“Chalk one up for common sense as the Namibian government got around worldwide anti-hunting extremists seeking to stop hunters’ critical conservation efforts—and, in turn, destroy the economic benefits hunters provide,” Mehall Phillips writes.
