WWF and trophy hunting

WWF opposes any hunting that threatens species survival, and WWF does not support the hunting of an animal solely as a trophy.

WWF respects and supports the rights of indigenous peoples and local communities to choose how best to live alongside and use natural resources in ways that advance wildlife conservation and their own sustainable development.

As we strive for a future where people live in harmony with nature, we are committed to supporting communities, governments, and partners in exploring new and more sustainable ways to use natural resources in the interest of conserving our natural world and developing a resilient, inclusive, and prosperous society.
