THE CAMPAIGN AGAINST CANNED HUNTING and THE KOUGA WILDLIFE REHAB CENTRE & SANCTUARY
The overall aim of the organisation is to promote animal welfare but for practical and historic reasons, CACH focuses on the following issues:-
BAN TROPHY HUNTING
BAN GIN TRAPS
The on going indiscriminate slaughter of wild animals by farmers acting in the belief that they are protecting their livestock is a major threat to wildlife. Non lethal alternatives are available and CACH has actively promoted the banning of gin traps and the abolition of the vermin laws in South Africa, both by legal proceedings all the way to the Constitutional Court, and by animal advocacy in the media.
Campaign Against Canned Hunting Inc, (CACH) was founded by Chris Mercer and Beverley Pervan. After years of campaigning using their own savings, they established a not-for-profit Section 21 company, which is dedicated to getting all trophy hunting banned in South Africa.
