1 POLICY DOCUMENT: SAPA Norms and standards for hunting managed ranch lions in South Africa [Approved at the SAPA AGM on 11 November 2011 Under Revision January 2016] 1. Objectives of this document Considering the provisions relating to the hunting of managed ranch lions, as contained in the Threatened or Protected Species (TOPS) Regulations that have been promulgated under the National Environmental Management: Biodiversity Act, 2004 (Act No. 10 of 2004), recognizing the differences in provincial legislative requirements, and considering the deficiencies and limitations of these requirements, the South African Predator Association wishes to proclaim its own standards and requirements for this all important sector of the large predator industry. The aim of these standards and requirements is three fold: to create uniformity amidst large differences between provincial standards, requirements and legislation; to define the ground rules for the hunting of managed ranch lions; and to create a basis for alignment with the professional hunting industry. The requirements set out hereunder will, subject to approval at the SAPA Annual General Meeting, be binding on all members of the Association. Failure to comply with these norms and standards will lead to disciplinary action and possible expulsion of the offender. 2. Major concerns Seen from a national and international perspective, there are five key areas of concern relating to the South African managed ranch lion hunting industry that this document will aim to address: The size of the hunting area; The release period prior to the hunt; The limitation of human imprinting on lions that will be hunted; The hunting methods; and The misrepresentation of facts to hunting clients (hunters). The norms and standards set out below are aimed at addressing the above concerns in such a way that the hunting of managed ranch lions is brought in line with best practices in the national and international trophy hunting industry. 3. Norms and standards for hunting South African Ranch Lions (i.e. managed ranch lions) The basic norm for hunting managed ranch lions is that only lions that were raised and kept under conditions deliberately aimed at preventing human imprinting may be hunted. For hunting purposes, human imprinting on lions needs to be kept to an absolute minimum. This means that lions destined for hunting should be kept as unhabituated as possible and should be raised and kept in a way that prevents human imprinting. Complementary to this basic norm, the preparation, as well as the conduct during the hunt is to be in line with internationally accepted standards. 1
