Fairfax, VA – -(Ammoland.com)- After major improvements to elephant conservation and management, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (Service) has announced it will approve importation permits of elephant trophies from Zimbabwe and Zambia.

The Service has determined that hunting would enhance the conservation and survival of African elephants.

The Service’s findings are for trophies taken in 2016 through 2018.

“By lifting the import ban on elephant trophies in Zimbabwe and Zambia the Trump Administration underscored, once again, the importance of sound scientific wildlife management and regulated hunting to the survival and enhancement of game species in this country and worldwide” said Chris Cox, Executive Director of the National Rifle Association’s Institute for Legislative Action.

“This is a significant step forward in having hunting receive the recognition it deserves as a tool of sound wildlife management, which had been all but buried in the previous administration.”
