The Obama administration banned imports of of trophies from Zimbabwe in 2014 after finding the nation's management of legal hunting did not enhance the survival of the African elephant in the wild.  

Donald Trump's administration has decided to allow the remains of endangered elephants legally hunted in Zimbabwe and Zambia to be imported into the United States of America.  

Elephants are listed as threatened under the US Endangered Species Act and importing ivory into America is banned unless certain conditions are met.

Lions, Rhino and Giraffes are endangered species.  Trophies from hunts killing these animals are still entering the USA from Africa. 

Trump has argued that hunting could help conservation efforts.  Hunting is driving megafauna to extinction.
