The South African government published a report by a High Level Panel on the future of its policies to protect wildlife, support local communities and provide for sustainable use. The panel recommended halting lion breeding operations to produce body parts and for canned hunting and also recommended that South Africa should not urge CITES to establish a legal trade in ivory. The report represents a substantial shift in the management of wildlife in the country.
