What is WRSA?

Wildlife Ranching South Africa leads the South African Agro Sustainable Biodiversity Wildlife Economy, contributing to the nation’s ranking as the third most biodiverse country globally. Private game ranchers, driven by a passion for wild heritage, have successfully restored and rejuvenated the country’s wild spaces. Representing responsible management, they enhance ecosystems, protect genetic integrity, and promote biodiversity. Rewilding marginal land, unsuitable for traditional farming, results in regenerative and economically beneficial wildlife. Private wildlife ranches now host three times more game than all protected areas combined, ensuring no indigenous African animal is at risk of extinction within South Africa’s borders. This Proudly South African game ranching model proves its effectiveness in securing a sustainable future for wildlife while contributing to the conservation of land, plants, and animals, fostering beauty, bounty, and meaningful environmental impact.



If you are a game rancher, or otherwise involved in the Agro Sustainable Wildlife Economy, the best way to support WRSA and he work that we do on behalf of our members, is by becoming a member.

There are different levels of membership:

  • Full membership
  • Additional membership for family members or staff
  • Friend of WRSA

Members also have exclusive access to the WRSAPortal – the unique, online game ranching management system!



WRSA always attempts to settle any matter through discussions and negotiations on the appropriate forums. However, from time to time it becomes necessary to seek legal opinion and advise to steer the best course on behalf of our members and our industry – and when unavoidable, take legal action.

Please consider donating to our legal fund to assist us to act when needed to protect the rights of the private wildlife ranchers and the wildlife in our care.



If you wish to become a sponsor of WRSA, any of our initiatives or events, please feel free contact us at our offices at +27 (0)12 335 6994 or email to with any enquiries or proposals.

The WRSA Foundation assists wildlife ranchers & communities in times of crises. Natural disasters such as droughts, floods and fires are some of the biggest risks facing any agricultural community. It is usually completely unpredictable, and the consequences are devastating.

Game ranches and private game reserves do not benefit from government disaster relief. Therefore, it is up to us to help them maintain their existing core herds through these difficult times. The WRSA Foundation initiative coordinates whatever assistance we can gather directly to the affected game ranchers, irrespective of whether they are WRSA members or not.
