Park Talk with the Namibia Nature Foundation

This Park Talk in collaboration with the Namibia Nature Foundation will address the issue of repositioning Hunting in Namibia’s Communal Conservancies. 

In a Namibian context, the compatibility between hunting, conservation and the biodiversity economy should be fairly obvious, but it must be recognised that there are enormous international pressures on hunting – particularly trophy hunting. In response to this and the potential impacts on Namibia’s Community Based Natural Resource Management Programme, the Namibia Nature Foundation worked with Sorris Sorris Conservancy and a wide range of partners, to look at ways of promoting conservancy hunting. Join us to discuss initiatives that have been led to reposition hunting and keep it as a relevant tool for conservation and development.
