The online tool by WildChoices, which applies the SATSA Guidelines, has identified 219+ captive wildlife tourism facilities in South Africa. This includes approximately 130 that have lions and/or other big cats in captivity.
Of the 219+ facilities, 64% fall into the AVOID category. If this is narrowed to the assessment of the 130 captive big cat facilities, 76% fall into AVOID.
We don’t need captive wildlife tourism facilities in a country that offers so many national parks and reserves, where people can experience a wide range of wildlife in their natural habitat. #KeepItWild
