A listing of sensitive species maintained by SANBI

Sensitive species are those that are vulnerable or potentially vulnerable to collecting, over-exploitation, commercial and/or medicinal use. 


SANBI will not release locality information for these species.  This information can only be provided subject to approval from a committee consisting of experts on the relevant taxa. Applications for access can be submitted here.


The National Sensitive Species List constantly changes as new data becomes available. If a species does not appear on this list it may still be under evaluation. Alternatively, if there is a species that needs to be added please contact us for assistance. 

Lists of sensitive species are published upon completion of the full assessment, see previous lists here.
