The General Assembly finds that the recreation and aesthetic needs of the people,
the interests of science, the quality of the environment, and the best interests of
the State require that endangered and threatened species of wild animals and wild
animals of special concern be protected and conserved, that their numbers should be
enhanced and that conservation techniques be developed for them; however, nothing
in this Article shall be construed to limit the rights of a landholder in the management
of his lands for agriculture, forestry, development or any other lawful purpose without
his consent. The North Carolina Zoological Park is not subject to the provisions of this Article.
