Die Suid-Afrikaanse Jagters-en-wildbewaringsvereniging (SAJWV) asook ander bewaringsinstansies is met reg bekommerd oor die departement van landbou en visserye se “eensydige” besluit dat wildboere nou met 12 wildspesies mag teel soos met vee om nuwe variëteite te vestig.  Die “vreemde” of meer korrek, resessiewe kleurvariante wat nou vry algemeen deur wildtelers dmv selektiewe teelmetodes geproduseer word, hou sonder twyfel ‘n groot bedreiging in vir natuurlike wildbevolkings.  Resessiewe kleurvariante is ‘n natuurlike verskynsel, maar diere wat kunsmatig geselekteer en geteel word om sekere “unieke” uiterlike kenmerke na vore te bring, skep ‘n besliste risiko vir wild wat in die natuur voorkom. Dit geld veral wanneer sulke geneties gemanipuleerde diere se getalle deur inteling tot kommersiële vlakke vermeerder word – en dit is presies wat nou op groot skaal aan die gebeur is.  

The Department of Environmental Affairs (DEA) held the 2nd national stakeholder engagement workshop on the intensive and selective breeding of colour variants in game in Pretoria on 2 December 2015. Presentations were made by scientists, local and international conservation organisations, government, local and international hunting organisations and game breeders.
