Stand for Ethical Hunting – Petition

Remove Illegally Obtained Kri Kri Ibex Trophies from SCI Record Books

Dear Fellow Hunters and Conservationists,

We are at a pivotal moment in the history of ethical hunting and wildlife conservation. A concerning trend has emerged in the hunting of the Kri Kri ibex, particularly in Macedonia and other regions, where illegal trade practices are tarnishing the noble tradition of hunting. It has come to our attention that trophies obtained through these unethical means have been recorded in the Safari Club International (SCI) record books, a situation that demands our immediate and collective action.

We are calling upon all responsible hunters, conservationists, and members of the hunting community to join us in signing a petition that urges the Safari Club International to remove all Kri Kri ibex trophies from their record books if they were hunted as a result of illegal trade. This action is not just about adhering to legal standards; it’s a stand for the ethical principles that underpin our passion for hunting and our commitment to conservation.

Why This Matters:

  • Conservation Ethics: The inclusion of illegally hunted trophies undermines efforts to preserve endangered species like the Kri Kri ibex.
  • Legal Compliance: Hunting must always comply with international laws, including the Bern Convention, which safeguards wildlife and their habitats.
  • Preserving Hunting Integrity: The integrity and future of hunting are at stake. We must demonstrate that hunting is a responsible and ethical conservation tool.

Your Signature Counts: By signing this petition, you are voicing your support for ethical hunting practices and the protection of wildlife. You are also helping to ensure that hunting organizations like SCI maintain their integrity and continue to play a positive role in wildlife conservation.

Spread the Word: We also urge you to share this petition with your fellow hunters, friends, and anyone in your network who stands for ethical hunting and wildlife conservation. Together, our collective voice can bring about the change we need to see in the hunting community.

Thank you for standing with us in this crucial fight for ethical hunting and the protection of our precious wildlife.
