    From the article:
    "The species added to the list are Black Wildebeest, Blue Wildebeest, Blue Duiker, Bontebok, Gemsbok, Impala, Oribi, Red Hartebeest, Roan, Sable, Springbok, and Tsessebe whereas the only wild animal that was previously listed under the Animal Improvement Act, was the Ostrich."

    So potentially might these species be more easily exported to zoos globally? There are a number of interesting and threatened species among them. Although, as the article states, the reasoning for some species to become subject to domestic animal management is unclear. Are all these species farmed in South Africa?
