Submission on the Wildlife Conservation Management Amendment Bill, 2019

Natural Justice was happy to make submissions to this law that seeks to amend the Wildlife Conservation and Management Act, No. 47 of 2013, in order to make further provision for the allocation of adequate facilities to County Wildlife Conservation and Compensation Committees established under the Act.

It also provides a timeline of six months for the compensation for human death, human injury or crop and property damage caused by wildlife in accordance with the Act to be finalized. The Bill makes further provision for the payment of compensation and other entitlements due to local communities affected by wildlife under the Act. This is essential to enable counties to perform their county functions as provided under Part 2 of the Fourth Schedule to the Constitution.
