The EMS Foundation, represented by Environmental lawyers Cullinan and Associates, submitted comments on the Draft Guidelines for the Transportation of Live Animals by Sea to the Department of Agriculture, Land Reform and Rural Development in South Africa on the 30th April 2021.
The position of the EMS Foundation is that South Africa should ban the live export of animals by sea (“live exports”) due to the nature of this mode of transportation, the exportations cannot be regulated to ensure that the welfare of animals can be protected during such a process.
Consequently, the EMS Foundation is of the view that neither regulations nor the Guidelines will be able to achieve the purpose which the Guideline purportedly aim to achieve.
