Dear SASSI stakeholders,

WWF-SASSI has recently compiled draft WWF-SASSI assessments for a number of priority species imported into South Africa for inclusion onto the WWF-SASSI list and consumer tools. Per the attached WWF-SASSI Wildcapture protocol (see international species subheading), interested and affected parties are hereby notified of the draft assessment outcome.

Interested parties are hereby invited to submit comments regarding the species up for review this year via email at sassi@wwf.org.za. WWF-SA recommends that comments be substantiated by appropriate scientific documents, such as government scientific working group documents or peer-reviewed journal papers. For further information, please read the attached assessment protocol and visit the WWF-SASSI website (http://www.wwfsassi.co.za/?m=1).

This period for public comment period for these species shall extend for 30 days and, thus, close at 5pm on Monday, 13 March 2017.
