Global Safari Club Expels Two SA Firms over Canned Hunting


Two South African hunting associations that embrace canned lion hunting have lost an appeal to retain their membership to Europe's top hunting organisation, and have been thrown out of the International Council for Game and Wildlife Conservation (CIC) for breach of policy.

The decision was taken by the CIC general assembly in Madrid, Spain, which rejected the appeal against suspension by the Professional Hunters' Association of South Africa (Phasa) and Confederation of Hunting Associations of South Africa (Chasa).

Their expulsion is considered the strongest rejection of South Africa's hunting policies, as well as the bodies which support canned lion or captive-bred shooting operations - shooting captive-raised lions is regarded as unethical and unsportsmanlike.

This follows a policy reversal by Phasa and Chasa in November last year to support the captive lion hunting industry, and permit membership of their respective organisations by persons who engage in the practice of captive-bred lion (CBL) shooting. This was despite Phasa members voting unanimously to reject captive lion hunts at its 2015 annual general meeting in Polokwane.

Tamas Marghescu, the director-general of the CIC, said "both Phasa and Chasa had exercised their rights of appeal in accordance with the Statutes of CIC, but failed in their bid to be reinstated.

"At the 65th General Assembly of the International Council for Game and Wildlife Conservation held in Madrid on May 4, an appeal was heard concerning the previous decision by the executive committee of the CIC to expel the Confederation of Hunting Associations of South Africa and the Professional Hunters Association of South Africa from membership of the CIC.

"The members of CIC present at the general assembly decided by 114 votes to three that the organisations were in breach of the policies of the CIC and the expulsion of both organisations was confirmed.

"There were nine abstentions," he said.

In September 2016, the executive committee of CIC adopted International Union for Conservation of Nature Resolution 13 of 2016 which called on the South African government to terminate the hunting of captive-bred lions.

Since Phasa's 2017 AGM in November, the world's leading hunting institutions have moved to distance themselves from Phasa and the captive-bred lion industry, which continues to tarnish South Africa's conservation reputation.

The list includes but is not limited to the CIC, Safari Club International, Dallas Safari Club, Boone and Crockett, The Wild Sheep Foundation, Custodians of Professional Hunting South Africa (CPHSA), Namibian Professional Hunters Association (Napha) and Operators and Professional Hunters Associations of Africa (Ophaa). …
