Ghana: Forestry Commission of Ghana Bans Hunting From Tomorrow



The Wildlife Division of the Forestry Commission has announced that the yearly hunting restriction will start tomorrow, Monday, August 1, 2022, and end on December 1, 2022.

According to the Wildlife Conservation Regulation of 1971, L.I.685, the prohibition is valid.

According to a statement from the Wildlife Division, “during this time, it shall be unlawful for anybody to hunt, capture, or destroy any wild animal, with the exception of the grass cutter (Akrantie), which may only be done with a permit provided by the Wildlife Division.”

Because “it is important to our welfare,” the statement urged people to safeguard wildlife.

The 2022 Closed Season was officially opened on Friday, July 29, 2022, by Benito Owusu-Bio, Deputy Minister for Lands and Natural Resources, who is also in charge of Lands and Forestry.

He said that the institutionalization of the close season is one way to protect the wildlife species as it provides the necessary conditions needed for the animals to procreate, nurse and nurture young ones for replenishment.
