The House of Representatives today is expected to take up a small but hotly contested provision in a foreign aid bill that provides millions of dollars to a development project in Zimbabwe, Africa. The project, called the Communal Areas Management Program for Indigenous Resources, or CAMPFIRE, is described by the US Agency for International Development as a rural economic development project. But opponents say that it benefits big-game trophy hunting, including the hunting of elephants.

Guests:

  • Wayne Pacelle, a vice president with the Humane Society of the United States, the nation’s largest animal protection organization with five million members.
  • David Hales, the director of the Global Environment Center at the US Agency for International Development.
