The Karoo Predator Project is now involved with the Scientific Assessment on Livestock Predation in South Africa (PredSA). The objective of this work is to “inform decision maker’s (in this case the South African government departments, and specifically the Ministers of Environmental Affairs and of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries) understanding of the issues around predation of livestock, based on the evaluation by acknowledged experts of the best available information. It will translate available scientific and “grey literature” as well as personal knowledge from South Africa into a form usable by policymakers.”
This work will be conducted as an independent and science-based assessment and will concern the whole of South Africa.
