Emirates bans transport of hunting trophies!

One of the world's biggest international airlines, Emirates, has banned the transportation of hunting trophies on all its services effective 15 May 2015. The ban affects the transportation of trophies of elephant, rhinoceros, lion and tiger. According to Emirates SkyCargo, "this decision is to support international governments, inter-governmental and non-governmental organizations that are managing wildlife population towards sustaining the task to eliminate illegal trade and transportation of hunting trophies worldwide and saving wildlife heritage". Emirates SkyCargo handles the cargo needs of all Emirates services, including its passenger services.
