Ezemvelo KZN Wildlife

Contact details for Ezemvelo KZN Wildlife, a parastatal body, mandated to carry out biodiversity conservation and associated activities in the protected areas within KwaZulu-Natal.

Ezemvelo KZN Wildlife operates within both the marine and terrestrial environments. Along the coastal zone, marine officers act as agents for Marine and Coastal Management (DEA Oceans & Coasts) in compliance monitoring and enforcing appropriate marine legislation to protect our marine and estuarine resources. They provide an essential service in conservation monitoring and advice. Ezemvelo officers are also involved with the management of marine strandings.

Current operations include the Marine Protected Areas (MPAs) and some coastal reserves within the region, such as Umlalazi Nature Reserve, Beachwood Mangroves and Mpenjati Nature reserve.

Among the special coastal areas managed by Ezemvelo KZN Wildlife are nesting sites for Loggerhead and Leatherback Turtles and the marine habitat of the Coelacanth.
