Saving Sally: An Eye-Opening Look at the Dark World of Trophy Hunting

As the final stage of Henry Smith MP's Bill to ban trophy hunting imports into the United Kingdom approaches, the trophy hunting industry has launched a massive disinformation campaign. To counter this, a new film produced by the Founder of the Campaign to Ban Trophy Hunting, Eduardo Goncalves, exposes the brutal nature of trophy hunting and the people involved in its execution.

Saving Sally is the dramatic story of an undercover investigation by the Campaign to Ban Trophy Hunting into hunting companies that are rearing tiger cubs for trophy hunters to shoot in enclosures. It also tells the extraordinary story of the group's attempt to rescue a young tiger called Sally from their clutches. The film is being released as Members of Parliament in Britain prepare to vote on a bill that would stop trophy hunters from bringing home the heads and bodies of animals they have shot for "fun."

Campaigners have dubbed the bill "Sally's Law" to draw attention to the fact that British trophy hunters are shooting some of the world's most endangered species for trophies, including lions, elephants, rhinos, hippos, giraffes, polar bears, and cheetahs.

Investigations by the Campaign to Ban Trophy Hunting have previously revealed how British trophy hunters have won prizes from the American gun lobby for their exploits, including single-handedly killing hundreds of animals. Opinion polls show that a ban is supported by 9 out of 10 voters.

However, the Commons debate is scheduled for a Friday when most MPs are in their local constituencies rather than in Parliament, which could block the ban from becoming law. Meanwhile, the American gun lobby and its allies are working furiously behind the scenes to stop the bill in its tracks.

If you are in the UK, please encourage your local MP to vote for Henry Smith's Bill to ban trophy hunting imports on March 17th 2023. Please fill out the form at the bottom of this page: Thank you for your support!

A question for Eduardo.

Surely it would make more political sense to ban the export of hunting trophies from the UK than the import of trophies into the UK. The UK exports more hunting trophies than it imports. It seems a bit hypocritical to expect the world to be the UK 's guinea pig while gambling with other countries wildlife and rural communities. Let the world see how the UK's wildlife flourish and rural communities livelihoods are improved with an export ban.
