 KZN WILDLIFE TO HOST CAPTIVE WILD ANIMAL WORKSHOP
For immediate release
As part of a public consultation process with regard to formulating draft recommendations on a proposed policy relating to the management of "ex situ" wild animals, Ezemvelo KZN Wildlife is to hold a public meeting at its head office in the Queen Elizabeth Park, Montrose, Pietermaritzburg on 13 October 2007 starting at 09.30 and finishing at 12.30.
The purpose of this meeting is to allow stakeholders the opportunity to discuss recommendations for the management of "ex situ" animals in KZN for later submission to the KZN MEC for Agriculture and Environmental Affairs , and to discuss areas where norms and standards for such animals are needed.
"Ex situ" animals are deemed to be any wild animals (birds, mammals or reptiles), exotic or indigenous, kept in captivity or out of their natural, wild environment for which control of use and management is provided for in legislation.
In addition, Ezemvelo KZN Wildlife has arranged a series of four stakeholder workshops to be held at the Krantzkloof Nature Reserve during October and November 2007 to develop norms and standards for various "ex situ" taxonomic groups - ie birds, mammals or reptiles - and/or sectors, ie rehabilitation.
Interested parties and stakeholders are asked to contact Tracey Jacobs telephonically on 031-4670447 or by email on business-services@iafrica.com for further information and to confirm their attendance.
