Africa: Calling Hunters to Action over USFWS Proposal to Require Import Permits for African Lion
Dominating hunting news on Africa this past month is the October 27, 2014 announcement that US Fish & Wildlife Service (USFWS) has proposed listing the African lion as threatened instead of endangered under the US Endangered Species Act (ESA). We told Email Extra subscribers about this in an email bulletin the day of the announcement, explaining how the announcement is not exactly cause for celebration. While the good news is that USFWS refused to list the lion as endangered, it is proposing a special import permit requirement for all African lions imported to the US....

Controversy: Dissatisfaction over Unsuccessful Kodiak Island Bear Hunt
In report 9886 subscriber Eugenio Gonzalez is very unhappy with a 10-day Kodiak Island brown bear hunt he took in late April 2013 with Larsen Bay Lodge.

Conservation Force: Revealed: USFWS “Information” that “Poaching Levels are Increasing” in Zimbabwe are Merely News Articles and Anecdotal Reports
By Regina Lennox, Staff Attorney


We are concerned that USFWS is sustaining the Zimbabwe trophy import ban on the worst available information: news articles and unsubstantiated reports from a "conservation task force" in Zimbabwe that is known to rely on false information.

In early August, we received a letter sent to a partner organization, dated August 5, and signed by the Principal Deputy Assistant Secretary for Fish and Wildlife and Parks. The letter responds to concerns about the elephant trophy import suspensions and states in part (with added emphasis):

For Zimbabwe, the picture is less clear, but we have information that indicates the situation there may be deteriorating and that elephant numbers are being reduced by widespread poaching. Although, as you stated in your letter, representatives of the Government of Zimbabwe have asserted that elephant populations there are increasing, there is information to the contrary, and while they have provided a considerable amount of documentation about their elephant and conservation programs, there is no data to refute the information that the Service has from other sources to indicate that poaching levels are increasing....
Conservation Force: Conservation Force & Partners Refute Negative USFWS Enhancement Finding on Zimbabwe Elephant Trophy Imports
By Regina Lennox, Staff Attorney

On October 16, 2014, Conservation Force submitted a 34-page comment to the USFWS, critiquing the USFWS's July negative enhancement finding for the import of tourist-hunted elephant trophies from Zimbabwe. We did this with full support from our partner organizations, including Shikar Safari Club, Dallas Safari Club, Houston Safari Club, and others. In our comment, we demonstrate that the enhancement finding is not based on the best available information regarding elephant conservation, but rather on anecdotal and/or generalized information. The finding also re-hashes the April suspension and even its 1997 ancestor (the most recent finding for Zimbabwe before this year). Moreover, the enhancement finding did not consider the vast majority of documents submitted by Conservation Force, the Zimbabwe Parks and Wildlife Management Authority, the Safari Outfitters Association of Zimbabwe, and the CAMPFIRE Association.

One of Conservation Force's main points was that "enhancement" has been shown, which means that the benefits that tourist hunting provides to Zimbabwe's elephant conservation strategy have been clearly documented and explained. This documentation and explanation was given to the USFWS in our earlier June 6 comment, submitted in response to the interim enhancement finding published by USFWS in April. Besides benefits to elephant conservation strategy, the comment also detailed the significant revenue generated by tourist hunting (which is then shared with local communities impacted by elephant), as well as the substantial anti-poaching contributions of hunting operators, which have kept poaching in check.

The comment also breaks down the USFWS enhancement finding by its subheadings and details its weaknesses, including re-used language, misreported information, and instances where significant, up-to-date data was not reviewed or considered. The comment concludes that the enhancement finding does not satisfy the USFWS's obligations under the Endangered Species Act or the Administrative Procedures Act.

Although the finding has many faults, a few of the most egregious are highlighted below.

· The finding fails to recognize devolution of wildlife management authority in Zimbabwe, even though this is fundamental to ZimParks' conservation planning and was explained in ZimParks' response to a questionnaire sent by USFWS. 

· The finding does not review or consider documents or assurances that Zimbabwe is holding a workshop to review and update its elephant management plan, which addresses many of the concerns noted in the finding. Instead of considering best available data, the finding relied too heavily on the AfESG Elephant Database. The database is a valuable source, but incomplete. It is not up-to-date and does not incorporate all surveys and censuses provided to USFWS. The Administrative Procedures Act requires USFWS to review and consider all information and surveys submitted, but USFWS seems to have just ignored them.

· Conservation Force submitted data demonstrating the negligible effect of tourist hunting on elephant populations. The enhancement finding does not consider or refute this data, but instead relies on "anecdote" to conclude that an offtake of far fewer than 500 elephant a year, in a population of over 90,000, is unsustainable.  Conservation Force demonstrated that Zimbabwe's elephant population is likely around 90,000 by compiling the surveys conducted in the past 10 years that were in USFWS's possession, but were ignored.

· Using the example of just one operator, Conservation Force explained significant financial and in-kind benefits to local CAMPFIRE communities, as well as contributions anti-poaching efforts generated by trophy hunting. We also showed the considerable impact a continuing trophy import ban will have on decreasing the benefits to communities and anti-poaching. This information was disregarded by the USFWS.

Conservation Force submitted additional information in support of its comment, including four reports written by expert Rowan Martin, which demonstrate that trophy hunting has the potential to generate substantial income, enough to cover the conservation and protection budget of Zimbabwe's entire elephant range. These reports also illustrate how a continuing ban on trophy imports jeopardizes the enhancement generated by tourist hunting and the revenue that currently supports conservation and anti-poaching programs. We hope that this time, USFWS will consider this data, as well as the corrections made throughout the comment, and lift the ban before the negative effects predicted in Martin's reports occur.

Conservation Force also submitted information showing that we are sponsoring a national elephant planning workshop in Zimbabwe in December and a preparatory CAMPFIRE workshop in November, largely funded by Shikar and DSC, respectively. Those workshops and the Great Elephant Census may make all the difference.
Conservation Force: USFWS Rejects Request for Reconsideration of Tanzania Permit Denials
By Regina Lennox, Staff Attorney


In a letter dated October 8, 2014, USFWS purportedly reconsidered, and again denied import permits for elephant trophies from Tanzania. The letter and enclosed non-detriment finding are short and address only a few of the points Conservation Force made in three submissions to USFWS. The denial letter and non-detriment finding essentially conclude that the 2013 Selous survey is of paramount importance because it reflects a significant decline in Tanzania's elephant population. They then focus on a few small points to deflect attention from what cannot be refuted - that enhancement was shown, and that tourist hunting offtake is not detrimental to the survival of the elephant.

The denial letter does not discuss or refute our point that, even assuming Tanzania's elephant population had declined, a limited and regulated offtake of 100 elephant is sustainable, especially given the benefits underwritten by tourist hunting. Conservation Force quantified these benefits with examples of anti-poaching and community and block development spending from a small sample of operators. FWS acknowledges that this spending benefits the elephant. But the letter expresses "concern[ ] over the Tanzania Government's ability to effectively manage and protect its elephant population based on the information available."

This "concern" is unfounded. As Minister of Natural Resources and Tourism Nyalandu has confirmed, poaching is way down in Tanzania, particularly in the Selous. The government has taken steps, with the support of hunting operators and international donors, to put boots on the ground and streamline conservation efforts. The result: zero poaching cases were recorded in the Selous in the last three months. Bernard Lugongo, Selous Anti-Poaching Drive Pays Off, The Citizen (Oct. 4, 2014).

The denial letter exposes USFWS's ignorance of Tanzania's progress. USFWS does not seem to realize - or is unwilling to acknowledge - that Tanzania's new parastatal, the Tanzania Wildlife Authority (TWA), is up and running, and making great strides against poaching. USFWS may be trying to shift the focus (although it knows better), perhaps because it cannot refute our evidence showing that tourist hunting offtake enhances the survival of elephant.

Unlike the letter, the non-detriment finding at least acknowledges "a number of improvements related to the status and management of elephants in Tanzania have been initiated in 2014." It acknowledges the receipt of data indicating that poaching has declined in Tanzania. But the finding clings to 2013 PIKE data, which is admittedly above 0.5 and higher than in 2012. The finding states, "These analyses suggest that poaching is not declining … in key areas of Tanzania." But that is an unbalanced conclusion from a scientific authority. While it is arguably true that the proportion of illegally killed carcasses increased in 2013 (although this is debatable because PIKE does not consider carcass age), the absolutenumber of elephant carcasses significantly declined. It fell by 25% in the Selous and by almost 50% in the Ruaha Rungwa. The real numbers reveal that poaching is declining in Tanzania.

The non-detriment finding also acknowledges that Conservation Force provided a large amount of supporting data with our submissions. It concedes that an April 2013 elephant survey reflects considerable population growth and a 50% reduction in carcasses. It concedes that actions have been taken by Tanzania's government to combat poaching, such as establishing the TWA, holding an elephant summit to bolster international support, increasing law enforcement capacity, and reinstituting retention funding in the Selous (which means the money generated by hunting stays put and is ploughed back into anti-poaching and conservation programs). The finding also lists "positive advances" in "key areas of elephant management in Tanzania," including promoting wildlife management areas and elephant corridors, enhancing trans-boundary coordination, reducing human-elephant conflicts, and cutting Tanzania's CITES quota in half. The finding concedes all of this, and does not refute it.

The only documents that the non-detriment finding takes issue with are Rowan Martin's 2014 reports demonstrating that regulated tourist hunting does not impact elephant population growth. The finding dismisses these reports as "modeling exercises" based on a "large number of assumptions," with "uncertain" practical utility. It would prefer "an updated analysis of trophy quality" for "elucidating the sustainability of trophy hunting." A trophy quality analysis is not likely to show much because Tanzania's strict size and weight restrictions keep trophy quality high. The non-detriment finding's suggestion here that more data is needed is perhaps an attempt to undercut all it conceded elsewhere. USFWS appears to be in a holding pattern, and unwilling to make a real reconsideration of its initial findings until the results of Tanzania's October surveys are released.

Conservation Force will appeal to the Director of USFWS by November 21 and will request an oral argument to contest the permit denials. We will argue, among other things, that the Tanzania decision is ill-advised because it is based on a single factor - the supposed 2013 Selous decline. That decline is old news, and the most recent surveys from Tanzania confirm that the elephant population in the Selous is growing. Minister Nyalandu has also reported a 40% decline in poaching. And there may soon be updated survey results from the Selous to further establish that the elephant population decline there is nowhere near what was previously reported.

The non-detriment finding concludes by stating that, "Until we see tangible indicators that elephant poaching has been significantly reduced in Tanzania, these actions [all the positive steps taken in and by Tanzania] alone are insufficient to reverse our finding for this harvest season." Conservation Force has provided these "tangible indicators," and will continue to do so. Tanzania's government has made unprecedented anti-poaching and international collaboration efforts, which we have and will continue to document and demonstrate to USFWS.
Conservation Force: ESA 12-Month Finding and Proposal to List all Lion as Threatened
By John J. Jackson, III


On October 29, the USFWS announced its 12-month finding on the status of all African Lion and issued a proposal to list all lion as threatened under the Endangered Species Act and to require import permits on all lion trophies. See the Federal Register Notice on Conservation Force's website athttp://www.conservationforce.org/pdf/FR-2014-25731-African-Lion-Threatened.pdf. The real rub is that USFWS proposes a special regulation overriding the exemption in the ESA that was intended to normally eliminate permitting of threatened listed species that are protected by Appendix II of CITES. Now, import permits are proposed that will only be issued upon proof that the take is sustainable and furthermore, that it enhances the survival of the species. This requirement for a permit, although noble in concept, is worrying....

Will Your Firearm Go Hunting With You this Season? Or Will the Airlines Eat It?
Barbara Crown, Traveling with your hunting firearm gets more difficult every year, thanks to ever-changing airline policies and government agency regulations. Right now, thousands of hunters are either finalizing travel plans for this fall or are about to get on a plane for the African safari season this summer. The question is: will their guns get to their final destination with them? Or will the airlines refuse to check them through?
