Solidarity for Environmental Justice

Wildlife, Biodiversity and Nature

Wildlife and biodiversity are some of the significant and usually silent victims of modern society and modern capitalism. As an organisation, we seek to ensure that the Earth and her species, wildlife and nature are afforded the best legal and advocacy services.

Our main focus is on animals in captivity, trade in live wild animals and in wildlife specimens as well as the treatment of animals in festivals, transport, and research facilities.

Since 2019, we have led public interest litigation against the capture and trade of wildlife and wild elephants from Zimbabwe. We have also campaigned against the encroachment of mines, especially coal and golf mines into national parks in the Global South.

We participated in critical global conferences such as the 18th Meeting of the Conference of the Parties to the UN Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES CoP18) in Geneva , Switzerland and the Elephants in Captivity Indaba in Hermanus, Western Cape, South Africa. We also form part of the Steering Committee of the Pro-Elephants Network.
