Adverse effects on natural ecosystems and environments as a result of interaction with wildlife are minimised

What does this mean?

  • The business needs to conduct a risk assessment to determine what adverse effects on natural ecosystems interaction with wildlife could result in.
  • Once these risks have been identified, the business needs to either ensure that these negative effects are avoided or minimised.

What do I do?

Where negative effects have been observed and are unavoidable, the business needs to:

  • Develop an action plan for rehabilitation
  • Make a compensatory contribution to conservation management such as the WWF: http://www.wwf.org.za/act_now/
