Fair Game? Improving the Well-Being of South African Wildlife

Fair Game? Improving the Well-Being of South African Wildlife

June 2018

This joint report, published by the Centre for Environmental Rights (CER) and the Endangered Wildlife Trust (EWT), was prompted by growing concern amongst civil society and NGOs about the absence of welfare considerations in conservation laws and practices. The report sets out the findings of a review of the regulation of the welfare of wild animals in South Africa. It finds that there are major gaps in both legislation and the implementation of those laws, leaving the well-being of wild animals without adequate protection.
