About the Cover

A male lion in Kenya’s Masai Mara National Reserve strikes a regal pose. Although this lion is protected from trophy hunters, other African lions—particularly in southern African nations—are not so fortunate. US policy on trophy hunting is in limbo: The US Department of the Interior is touting its supposed economic benefits and seeking to lift restrictions on trophy imports. President Trump, however, seems of a different mind on the matter. Many airlines, meanwhile, have taken a clearer stand, denying transport of trophies taken from Africa’s “big five”—lions, elephants, rhinos, leopards, and buff aloes.
