SECTION A HOW TO OBTAIN AN APPLICATION FORM

EXPLANATORY INFORMATION AND PROCEDURES FOR APPLICANTS FOR KEEPING ANIMALS IN CAPTIVITY

1. Application forms may be obtained from Ezemvelo KwaZulu-Natal Wildlife (Permits Office at Head Office, a conservation officer or the website www.kznwildlife.com) which is authorised to receive the application for submission to the Premier, the MEC, the Board, the CEO or the duly appointed officer authorised by the Board (the authorised authority). 2. This Application Form only applies if you intend to keep live animals in captivity or if you wish to alienate (sell, exchange, purchase, trade), breed, exhibit, display, import/export, transport or release such captive animals (these are the restricted activities for which permits are required).

ANIMAL SPECIES AND USES REQUIRING PERMITS

3. Animals and restricted activities respectively mean the game, mammals, wild birds, protected indigenous reptiles, amphibians, invertebrates and listed threatened or protected species, and the activities, described in Annexure 1 (for some taxa this includes both indigenous and exotic species). 4. Registration, licences and/or permits are required for keeping in captivity and related activities, only for such animals listed in Annexure 1. a. "licenses" means an authorisation issued in terms of the Natal Conservation Ordinance, applicable to birds and game; b. "permits" means an authorisation issued by Ezemvelo for the keeping in captivity of ToPs species, mammals, reptiles and amphibians and game; c. "registrations" means an authorisation for the establishment and operation of a captive facility;

LEGISLATION

5. These documents apply only to wild species of animals and do not apply to any recognised domestic animals. Keeping in captivity of wild animal species that are not listed in Annexure 1 do not require authorisation. 6. Captivity is a situation where an animal is kept in custody, constrained, controlled or dependent on humans, or where animals are contained in a cage, enclosure, boma or fenced land that is too small for them to sustain themselves independently as indicated in Annexure 2 7. Animals are considered to be dependent on humans, where they: a. Require supplemental feeding, or if they have access to irrigated lands, animals must be within carrying capacity without the irrigation b. Require supplementary water 8. In the case of animals naturally/historically occurring on a property less than the minimum specified size for wild populations, which are self-sufficient in all respects, would not be considered captive when the property is fenced. However, if a permit application for this same property is requested to introduce new individuals of the species, these would then be subject to these guidelines for captive animals. 9. You should be aware of the legislation listed in Annexure 3 10. The guidelines for Procedures and Application Form provided here cater for the requirements of both KwaZulu-Natal provincial legislation (Ordinance) as well as national legislation (NEMBA and ToPS regulations). Once you have completed the Application Form Ezemvelo will be in a position to advise you as to which provincial and national authorisations you require, and wherever possible if the application is approved, will issue integrated permits to streamline the process. 11. Every application must demonstrate the Applicant’s ability to comply with the relevant Standard Terms and Conditions (including those contained in the associated Tables) (Annexure 4).

STANDARD TERMS AND CONDITIONS

Page 1

12. The Standard Terms and Conditions contained in Annexure 4 apply to all the activities and listed species, unless some provisions have been excluded or varied. If you have good reason not to comply with any of the terms or conditions, , or where you require time to attain the standard, you must identity the terms and conditions which should not apply to your application and comprehensively motivate your request for variation. 13. The applicant (whether an individual/company/ partnership or closed corporation) as approved, will be responsible for compliance with the terms and conditions of any registration/license or permit issued.

14. Where you wish to display, breed, sell or trade in animals or keep large collections of REGISTRATION AND PERMITS animals in captivity, you may be required to first register as a specific type of Captive Facility, before you can receive a permit or license. Note that if you are applying to import, FOR FACILITIES trade or keep in captivity a few animals for non-commercial purposes, outside of the ambient of the facilities listed below in 15 to provide them with refuge or as a hobby, and do not intend to conduct any restricted activities (e.g. display to the public, breeding or sale), you would not normally need to apply to register yourself as a captive facility (see points 24 and 25 below). 15. The types of facilities that you can apply for are limited to the following: a. Commercial Exhibition Facilities (Zoo) b. Conservation Awareness Centre c. Scientific Institutions d. Sanctuaries e. Rehabilitation Centres f. Captive Breeding Facility g. Aviary h. Game Park i. Wildlife Trader j. Quarantine Facility 16. A Game Park is a facility where game are kept captive for display to the public (i.e. enclosed in areas smaller than can sustain the animals naturally - see Annexure 2), and is distinct from a Commercial Game Reserve/Game Farm where game animals are held on land greater than 400ha. Approval from the Ezemvelo Board for Game to be held in enclosures less than 20ha in a Game Park. 17. If a person/organisation keeps animals only temporarily for short periods, less than 30 days, in captivity for sale/trade, and is not engaged in any other restricted activities (such as long-term keeping in captivity and breeding) a permit is required for keeping in captivity/possession and trade/sale, and registration as a Wildlife Trader for listed ToPS species. This would apply to pet-shops and other traders. 18. Definitions for these types of facilities (listed in Point 15 above), and the activities that may occur at them are provided in the Definitions section. In some cases it is possible to register your operation as more than one type of facility. 19. If you are a first time applicant you must complete all relevant sections of the application form. 20. If you have already been registered and allocated a unique applicant number, you only have to complete the section relevant to your application and any other particulars which may have changed since registration. 21. Your application for registration of a facility should be accompanied by a Management Plan for the facility, completed in accordance with the format in Annexure 5, where this is required by legislation or applicable Norms and Standards. 22. Unless otherwise stated, registration of your facility will be valid for 36 months from the date of issue. 23. Once registered, a permit/license is required before animals may be kept at the facility (which will specify the number of each species that may be kept in captivity, the applicable standard terms and conditions and any other requirements). It is your responsibility to apply for renewal at least 30 days before expiry of this permit. 24. The holder of a registered facility shall comply with an approved Management Plan (where required), unless any variation or non-compliance is authorised in writing by the Local Conservation Officer. (Individuals who keep animals do not normally require a management plan). 25. Taxa or activity specific conditions may apply, in addition to general Standard Terms and Conditions, as indicated in Annexure 4. In particular tailor-made permit conditions apply for TAXA OR ACTIVITY SPECIFIC some species and activities where there are specialised requirements or where there is an PERMIT CONDITIONS organised association or special interest group (for example for falconry, scientific, crocodile farming, conservation breeding working groups and some hobbyist groups) recognised by the Board.

Page 2

26. In the event of display, exhibition or use of any animal in captivity at premises other than permanent premises of an authorised facility, a transport and temporary captivity permit is required. A permit must be applied for in respect of individually identified animals for a specified period identifying the approximate dates and locations of anticipated display, exhibition or use. In the event of temporary captivity at such other locations or facilities, the animals shall be kept in enclosures complying with the specifications reflected on the permit.

27.If you intend to conduct research on a captive animal or use it for a scientific study, you must apply to become registered as a Scientific Facility. To qualify to be registered as a Scientific SCIENTIFIC USE AND Facility you must have the formal support and oversight of an official tertiary research RESEARCH institution (such as a University) and must attach written confirmation of this relationship. 28. All authorisations for use of captive animals for scientific purposes will require pre-approval by a duly appointed Animal Ethics Committee of an official tertiary research institution, and such approval must be submitted with the application for keeping the animals and the activities being applied for. 29. In addition to general conditions, particular permit conditions relevant to scientific use may be applicable as set out in Annexure 4 30. PERMITS FOR NONCOMMERCIAL KEEPING OF A SMALL COLLECTION OF ANIMALS

If you are applying in your individual capacity to import or keep in captivity a few animals at your private home to provide them with refuge or as a hobby, and do not intend to conduct any restricted activities (e.g. display to the public, breeding or sale/trade), you would not normally need to apply to register yourself as a captive facility or to complete a management plan.

31. For non-commercial (private) keeping of a small number of animals you need to complete only the parts relevant to permits (not registration) as indicated in Part A1 of the Application Form, and will need to comply only with the permit conditions set out for small animal collections in Annexure 4. 32. Unless waiver or exemption has been granted all the general conditions and relevant taxa/species specific conditions set out in Annexure 4 must be met by the holder of the permit / licence. Applicants should motivate for waiver or exemption on application, explaining particular circumstances and reasons.

SPECIALIST ASSOCIATIONS

33. Associations or organisations with a duly adopted and approved Constitution may apply for recognition by the Board of Ezemvelo as a Specialist Association, as described in the Definitions Section below. 34. Recognised Specialist Associations may apply, on behalf of its members, for a waiver or variation of any of the terms and conditions. These may be granted on the basis that any such exemptions or variations will operate for the benefit of paid up and registered members of such associations or organisations, and that the association/organisation will take effective measures to ensure compliance by its members with the exemptions or variations approved in favour of the association/organisation. (Examples of associations that may qualify are falconry associations and bat/bird interest groups).

FALCONRY

35. If you intend to use a bird for falconry, you may apply as a member of a registered duly constituted Specialist Association. If you are in “good standing” as a member of such an organisation, you will then be afforded the waivers or variations granted to your Association with regard to registration and permit terms and conditions. This will streamline your application process and the administration of your permit. 36. The use of wild caught birds (i.e. "passage birds") may be permitted for the use of Falconry on special motivation. Specialist Associations may apply for such but will be required to demonstrate that a process to manage the release of such birds back into the wild within 2 years is in place. 37. Only A-grade Falconers will be allowed to make use of exotic birds for Falconry, and all such birds will require approved telemetry tracking devices. 38. Removal of eggs from the wild for falconry requires separate approval, unless it is within the conditions approved for a Specialist association of which the falconer is a member.

Page 3

TEMPORARY KEEPING AWAY FROM FACILITY

39. A separate application must be made for every specific instance where an animal is to be temporarily transported and held in captivity away from a registered/licensed/permitted facility, unless the animal is removed for veterinary treatment.

IMPORT, EXPORT, SALE ACQUIRE

40. Where a registration/permit/license holder wishes to purchase, import (into KwaZuluNatal) or acquire or sell, export (out of KwaZulu-Natal) or dispose of any animals permanently to or from a registered facility, separate application must be made. 41. Notwithstanding the provisions of clauses 28 and 29 and in the event of urgency, the relevant area Conservation Officer may, on full disclosure of the required information, temporarily grant written permission for any of these activities, for species already permitted, on condition that the written application with prescribed fees is received within 48 hours thereafter.

QUARANTINE

42. If animals are imported into the country, quarantine requirements specified in the Animal Diseases Act 25 of 1984 must be met. A permit must be obtained from the Relevant Authority, via the State Veterinarian. 43. The authorisation obtained from the Relevant Authority does not replace the need to have import permits and authorisations to keep in captivity in the province from Ezemvelo, before they are brought into the province. 44. In the event that animals are brought into the country via another province, where they may have been kept temporarily or quarantined, an import permit to move the animals to KwaZulu-Natal is required. 45. In the event that animals are brought into KwaZulu-Natal temporarily in transit to another province or country, an import permit and keep in captivity permit is required for them to be in the province at any time and location. In the case of animals in transit through the province or to a listed point of exit (Harbour, Airport) no such permits shall be required if such transit is less than 48hrs. 46. Quarantine facilities are in transit facilities for the temporary housing of animals, and may not be utilised for the long-term keeping of animals in captivity. They are thus not a final destination, and every animal that is held there must have a pre-approved destination to which it will be transferred after the quarantine period.

BREEDING

47. The breeding of animals in captivity requires that a Breeding Plan must be approved, including each species to be bred, unless it is part of an approved research project. 48. Incidental breeding in small non-commercial collections may be exempted from the requirement of an approved Breeding Plan, if the capacity approved on in the licence or permit is not exceeded. In such cases applicants should motivate for such exemption.

DEATHS

PROCESS TO FOLLOW TO APPLY FOR A PERMIT

49. Where specified as a requirement for the species as a condition of the permit/license, or where any animal is required to be micro-chipped in terms of these conditions, the Conservation Officer must be informed within 24 hours (and before disposal of the remains) of the death of any animal. 50. Applications must be made by completing the relevant sections on the Application Form (Section B). 51. If you are a first time applicant you must complete all relevant sections of the application form. 52. If you have already been registered and allocated a unique applicant number number, you only have to complete the section relevant to your application and any other particulars which may have changed since registration.

Page 4

53. The completed Application Form must be accompanied by the prescribed fees or proof of payment thereof. 54. Unless earlier written extension has been granted by the authorised authority, all other applications for registration, licences or permits must be made before the intended commencement date of the activity in respect of which application is made and, in any event, no later than 30 DAYS before expiry of an existing registration, licence or permit. 55. The activity in respect of which written application is made may not be commenced with until the relevant registration, licence or permit has been issued. 56. In the event of the Applicant not being the owner of the property in respect of which application is made for registration, licence or permit, written approval from the registered owner of the property is required with submission of the application.

CHECKING WITH AFFECTED PARTIES

OMISSIONS OF REQUIRED INFORMATION

57. If the registration, issue of the permit or licence sought, is to the knowledge of the Applicant likely to prejudice the rights of another person, such person must be given written notice of the nature of the application and a description of the property in respect of which it is made, at least 15 DAYS before submission of the application, and proof of such notice (by written acknowledgment or issue by registered post) is required with the application. 58. On receipt of an application, the Local Conservation Officer shall inform the Applicant in writing within 14 working days of any omissions and advise the Applicant of any additional information, a risk assessment, expert evidence or supporting documentation required. 59. In such event the Applicant shall be afforded 14 DAYS from the date of notification to cure the omissions and/or furnish the information, risk assessment or documentation required, failing which the application shall be considered to be withdrawn.

INSPECTIONS

60. Before registration or issue of any licence or permit, an inspection of the proposed facility and/or property may be conducted by officials duly appointed by the Board. During the inspection the Applicant will be required to allow the officials access to the entire premises and to all animals in captivity on the property. During the inspection of the property, the animals and the facilities may be recorded by photographic means by such officials. 61. Within 14 DAYS of the inspection, the inspection officials will issue an inspection report, reflecting a description of the property, facilities and animals observed, the extent of compliance with relevant requirements, the extent of any non-compliance with relevant requirements, any recommendations on non-compliance, a recommendation to grant or refuse the application (including any recommended terms and conditions) and the reasons for the recommendations. 62. A copy of the inspection report will be made available to the Applicant with opportunity to respond, in writing, within 14 DAYS of receipt thereof

DECISION TO GRANT, QUALIFY OR REFUSAL

63. Thereafter the authorised authority with the power to grant or refuse the relevant registration, licence or permit (or to determine its terms and conditions) will consider the application and the Applicant’s written response, if any, and grant or refuse the application or make any other decision authorised by law and, in the event of it being granted, may include any reasonable and necessary conditions or terms relating to the registration, licence or permit sought. 64. If the decision is to refuse registration or the issue of a licence or permit, or if it is qualified, the authorised authority will within 10 DAYS of the decision, issue the Applicant with written reasons for such refusal or qualification.

Page 5

65. Registration or issue of a licence or permit may be refused or qualified where the application is not properly completed and timeously submitted, where the application is not accompanied by the prescribed licence, registration or permit fees or valid receipt, where the Applicant fails to demonstrate the ability to comply with the relevant Standard Terms and Conditions or any other relevant statutory requirements, where the Applicant has previously failed to comply with the terms or conditions of any similar registration, permit or licence issued or where any other valid and good reason exists for the application to be refused or qualified. CANCELLATION

66. Any registration, licence or permit granted or approved, may be amended, qualified, cancelled or withdrawn for any good reason (including as a result of the adoption or issue of provincial or national norms/standards), if the Applicant or holder fails to comply with the applicable standard terms and conditions or any applicable statutory requirements, or if false information was provided in the application. 67. Before cancellation, amendment, qualification or withdrawal of registration, licence or permit, written notice shall be given to the Applicant or the holder of the registration, licence or permit, affording the Applicant 30 DAYS or such longer period as may reasonably be required, within which to comply with the relevant terms, conditions or requirements or to make written representations why the registration, licence or permit should not be amended, qualified, cancelled or withdrawn for failure to do so. 68.
