  • to hired persons the travel and accommodation expenses in SA and hunting licence are covered
  • close cooperation with hunting farms in SA
  • “Hunters” give up their trophies after the hunt…

summary

Czech Authorities refuse to confirm data on CZ hunters because of big risk to abuse hunting trophies for commercial purposes

  • Rhino hunting trophies as a source for black market
  • CZ supports ban on trade with rhinos or its functional regulation by EU law
