Leopard CITIES allocations to Limpopo based outfitters 2013
Thought I would inform all forum members of the Limpopo hunters liaison forum meeting held with environmental affairs today.
A total of 32 (in place of this years 52) permits will be available to non BEE compliant operators for 2013, the remaining 20 permits will only be issued to operators that are in a PDI partnerships (previously disadvantaged individuals) these partnerships are to be entered into over a period of 3 years and compliant outfitters will be guaranteed such tags 1 leopard and 1 Elle for the duration of the partnership.
These steps have been taken by the department due to the slow progress made in empowerment.
My very best always.
