Call of the Wild Lions

South Africa has a rich diversity of flora and fauna and is a destination of choice for eco-tourists and sports hunters as well as being a source of wild animals. As a result of their monetary value and the need for their keepers to conform to provincial conservation and national legislation, wild animals are perhaps better cared for than most, although their most basic need – freedom – is denied from them. Therefore recommendations for improvements at all facilities inspected form part of our ongoing strategy to uplift the lives of wild animals in captivity.

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

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.
