Exclusive: Hollywood PR Firm 42 West Cuts Ties to Botswana: “We have ended this relationship”


Hollywood PR firm 42 West has severed ties with the government of Botswana over elephant hunting and anything else.

I am so proud of them for reacting swiftly and making the right decision. It’s a good thing this is over. Now I hope Botswana will rethink their position on elephant hunting and respect the great population that tourists come to see.

Here is a statement from the partners at 42 West:

“While the nature of what 42West was hired to do for the Botswana Ministry of Environment, Natural Resources Conservation and Tourism has been grossly misrepresented, we have ended this relationship.”
