Houston Safari Club Comments On HBO’s “Real Sports” Feature On Elephants

Houston Safari Club (HSC) would like to take the opportunity to comment on HBO’s recently-aired feature on the status of the African elephant. The segment aired on “Real Sports with Bryant Gumbel”, November 24, 2015. The piece focused on the declining numbers of African elephants. HSC applauds the investigative work of HBO’s journalists in publicizing international poaching issues facing elephants today and those brave individuals fighting great odds to protect the elephant from poachers. HSC absolutely disagrees that legal, regulated, ethical hunting should be linked with poaching, as a primary reason for the elephant’s declining numbers.

Conservation Force, DSC, HSC And Partners Sue Delta To End “Big Five” Hunting Trophy Embargo

Conservation Force, Dallas Safari Club, Houston Safari Club, the CAMPFIRE Association, the Tanzania Hunting Operators Association (TAHOA), and Corey Knowlton filed suit today against Delta Air Lines, Inc. to compel an end to Delta’s illegal embargo on transport of hunting trophies of the “Big Five” (lion, leopard, elephant, rhino, and buffalo) from Africa.
