JAGPROKLAMASIE 2010:  ORDONNANSIE OP NATUUR- EN OMGEWINGSBEWARING, 1974

1. Die jagproklamasie vir die Provinsie Noord-Kaap word jaarliks ingevolge die Ordonnansie op Natuur- en Omgewingsbewaring (Ordonnansie 19 van 1974) uitgevaardig deur die Lid van Uitvoerende Raad belas met Toerisme, Omgewing en Bewaring.

2. Ingevolge hierdie proklamasie word jagseisoene vir sekere beskermde wildspesies en jagvo?ls verklaar, asook die daaglikse jagbuit en die opheffing van sekere verbode jagmetodes. Daar is geen jagseisoen vir beskermde wilde diere wat nie in die jagproklamasie verskyn nie. Vir beskermde wilde diere wat nie ?n jagseisoen het nie, moet daar dan ?n permit uitgereik word, behalwe vir grondeienaars met die spesies op hul omheiningsertifikate.

3. Die jagproklamasie word op groot skaal onder die publiek versprei en enige laat wysigings aan die oorpronklike proklamasie kan slegs verwarring veroorsaak en wetstoepassing bemoeilik. Vir hierdie rede sal veranderings aan die proklamasie na verskyning slegs in uiterste gevalle en met deeglike motiverings deur die LUR oorweeg word.

4. Die Jagproklamasie vir 2010 word ter insae aangeheg. U word hiermee versoek om voor of op 22 November 2010 skriftelik aan te dui of die 2010 status quo vir u gebied in 2011 gehandhaaf moet word al dan nie.


5. Versoeke ter wysiging van die huidige posisie, asook die byvoeging van spesies moet asseblief met biologiese en ekologiese redes gemotiveer word. Versoeke wat nie behoorlik gemotiveer is nie, sal ongelukkig nie oorweeg word nie.

6. Die volgende aspekte moet asseblief in gedagte gehou word tydens die formulering van enige wysigings wat voorgestel word:

6.1. Die Ordonnansie maak slegs voorsiening vir die LUR om 'n jagbuit per dag af te kondig.

6.2. Versoeke vir die opskorting van verbode jagmetodes (Artikel 29 van Ordonnansie) moet behoorlik gemotiveer word.

7. U word vriendelik versoek om te konsulteer met u lede, sub-strukture of affiliale, na gelang van die geval, oor hierdie aangeleentheid. Dit is belangrik dat alle voorgestelde wysigings ons voor of op 22 November 2010 bereik, aangesien die jagproklamasie jaarliks in Desember afgekondig word en die administratiewe proses om die konsepproklamasie persgereed te kry geen ruimte laat om voorgestelde wysigings wat na genoemde keerdatum ontvang word, te verwerk nie.

8. U insette voor die gemelde datum sal waardeer word. Insette wat per faks ingedien word, is aanvaarbaar.

Die uwe
