The KwaZulu–Natal Nature Conservation Board - “the Board” - is a Schedule 3C public entity reporting to the Department of Agriculture, Rural Development and Environmental Affairs. The Board is the Accounting Authority.
The mandate of the Board is derived from the KwaZulu–Natal Conservation Management Act (No. 9 of 1997) read in conjunction with the Public Finance Management Act (No. 1 of 1999)
The same act created the KwaZulu–Natal Nature Conservation Service - “the Service” - which is the infrastructural entity required to support the Board members in carrying out their mandate. For trading and branding purposes the name Ezemvelo KZN Wildlife (Ezemvelo) was registered as a trademark, and has become the brand name of the organization.
