CARGOLUX has outlawed the transport of lion bones, a rising trend in wildlife trafficking over the past decade that is closely linked to both poaching and lion breeding for trophy hunts.

The airline said it was amongst the first major cargo carriers to ban these shipments, London's Air Cargo News reported.



'Although the company has not yet been approached to handle such commodities, it is crucial to take this stance in order to raise awareness within the industry and promote ethical operations,' it said.



Chief executive Richard Forson said: 'Cargolux is strongly committed to conservation and animal welfare, a cause that the company increasingly engages in wherever possible.



'Once we became aware of the emergence of this trade, the decision was immediately taken to ban the transport of such cargo throughout our network. It is highly important that all players in the transport industry recognise their responsibility towards wildlife trafficking and take all applicable measures to eliminate this trade.'
