SA Proposed Biodiversity Management Plan to put lions at greater risk!

7

The Global White Lion Protection Trust (WLT) has sent an urgent letter of objection to the Director-General of Environmental Affairs, highlighting major concerns about the proposed National Biodiversity Management Plan (BMP) for Lions in South Africa (Gazette No. 38706).

As the proposed Biodiversity Management Plan stands, it will 

1)  legitimise the notorious malpractice of captive breeding and hunting of lions i.e. ‘canned lion hunting’ 

2)  increase the demand for hunting of wild lions for parts, and 

3)  put wild lion populations in SA at greater risk by down-listing the conservation status of lions in South Africa from
Vulnerable to Least Concern.

    Please stop this radical and unnecessary killing of lions. This is the most regal animal on this planet. Down grade to Least Concern is rubbish and only accommodates the ego of man. Stop this, now….

    The heart of Africa is torn out every time one of it’s Lions is taken by the hands of man. Man’s hands will not rebuild the heart of Africa. Those responsible for such annihilation will have a high price to pay. Some tings should be returned to their homeland for their homeland to flourish, the Lion is one of them. The Lion is the Heart of Africa.

    For heaven’s sake, haven’t we done enough injury to this, and many other species? We should be doing everything we can to protect and save them, not cause them further harm.
