THE GENESIS OF BTH LTD.
Ban Trophy Hunting Ltd. is a Non-Profit organization headed by Mike and Maryanne Donovan, who have worked, lived, safaried and toured Africa extensively and have developed strong relationships with the African people. Throughout the years they have contributed millions of dollars to the local indigenous people through their Eco-Tours.
Due to their involvement in Africa, the Donovan's are acutely aware of the damaging effects of Trophy Hunting on African wildlife, and as a result of continuing involvement in advocating against trophy hunting in Africa, they have also become aware that Canada is actually the largest exporter of Trophy in the world! The Donovans realized that the same people who were Trophy Hunting in Africa are the same people that are Trophy Hunting in Canada. Trophy Hunting has no place in a civilized society. This was the genesis of BTH Ltd.
Ban Trophy Hunting Ltd (BTH Ltd.) is a non-profit organization advocating for the complete ban of trophy hunting . The aim of BTH Ltd. is to make the public , the media and the politicians aware of the true extent and nature of trophy hunting , to let politicians know that their voters consider the banning of trophy hunting to be an important election issue , and to exert pressure on politicians to expeditiously enact legislation completely banning trophy hunting.
