  • Limpopo Hunters Liaison Forum LHLF

    The Limpopo Hunters Liaison Forum (LHLF) was formed in 1996 as the discussion platform between Limpopo Economic Development, Environment and Tourism (LEDET) and the Limpopo Hunting Outfitters. This forum of Hunting Outfitters, Professional Hunters and associated role-players liaises with LEDET on issues involving challenges and suggestions for the Limpopo hunting industry. In 2007, the training branch of the LHLF was formed with the purpose of training PDI Professional Hunters. Funding to train these PHs comes from the voluntary R5 000 levy paid by Outfitters when successfully applying for a CITES leopard tag. During 2014, the Leopard Hunting Zone system was introduced by LEDET, based on available scientific research provided by Panthera. The system was not perfect and additional ongoing research from the private sector was imminent. Dr Bennie Mzileni Maruping was appointed to represent the private hunting sector in South Africa at the South African National Biodiversity Institute. Research funded by the industry is a huge indication of Hunters Care. Consequently, the Conservation Research Fund was born. The LHLF also realises that, by involving all role-players, a better environment can be created to conduct the ultimate goal of responsible and sustainable hunting practices in an ever-changing world, where social media and political influences have to be taken into account.
