I support the end of the captive big cat industry

We need your help to protect ALL big cats in South Africa!

Minister Barbara Creecy has recently released a draft policy position on the conservation and ecologically sustainable use of elephant, lion, leopard and rhinoceros. We are encouraged by the Department’s decisions, but it is clear that more needs to be done to end the farming and commercial trade in all big cat species.

A change in legislation is more important than ever. The exploitation of big cats in South Africa continues to grow and includes not only indigenous species like lions, but also exotic species such as tigers and jaguars. All big cats deserve protection.

How can you make a difference?

We are asking you to voice your support to the Government's decision to close the captive lion industry and furthermore ban ALL breeding and commercial trade of big cats. This is your chance to speak up for the welfare of all captive big cats. With only a few clicks, you can submit a letter to the Government showin your support to our recommendations.
