Wildlife Protection

In operation since 1987, the Wildlife Protection Unit has gained national recognition for its expertise and sound approach to the welfare of wildlife, often being called upon to assist in the resolution of practical problems.

National issues and problems are addressed through the development of standards for the benefit of animals within the wildlife industry. The Unit is also active in providing welfare input into national and provincial legislation which control wild animal use.

The Unit’s activities include – wildlife rescue operations, lobbying to outlaw unethical practices, monitoring of conditions in zoos, sanctuaries and rehabilitation centres, elephant-back safaris, captive predator facilities et al through pro-active inspections and complaint investigations and assisting SPCAs around the country with wildlife issues in their respective areas.

The Unit provides awareness training on the Animal Protection Act and its implications for captive wildlife facilities and wild animal welfare.
