Africa Hunting :  Phasa Applauds SAA Decision To Lift Cargo Embargo On Certain Hunting Trophies

on 2015/9/2 21:20:00 (1607 reads)

The Professional Hunters Association of South Africa (PHASA) has welcomed the decision by South African Airways (SAA) to reverse the embargo it had effected on 21 April this year on the transportation of rhino, elephant, lion and tiger trophies on the carrier’s services worldwide.
Adri Kitshoff, chief executive, said that the reversal brought SAA’s directives regarding the transport of legally hunted trophies in line with the South African Government’s policy of “sustainable utilisation” of its natural resources.
Kitshoff expressed PHASA’s appreciation to the Department of Environmental Affairs (DEA) for their intervention in the matter as well as to SAA for the opportunity to meet with the carrier’s executives and to explain to them the importance of hunting to Africa’s economy and conservation programmes. She said that PHASA’s efforts to overturn the embargo through the direct negotiation with SAA, the DEA and Minister Edna Molewa since April had finally paid off.
Kitshoff said she is hopeful that other airlines and shipping lines that have refused to transport hunting trophies will follow SAA’s lead. “SAA has elected to fight the illicit trade in wildlife products through more stringent control methods instead of placing restrictions on the transport of legally hunted sport trophies. The same remedy is available to the other carriers,” she said.
“There is a clear distinction between illegal wildlife products, such as poached rhino horn or ivory, and legitimate hunting trophies. The export of trophies is strictly regulated by both the country of origin, the country of import and, where applicable, CITES.”
