Namibian Carnivore Working Group


The Ministry of Environment, Forestry and Tourism, as well as several of the Namibian Carnivore Working Group member organisations will happily provide you with free advice over the phone about any carnivores you might have on your farm, livestock predation and mitigation methods or further information about carnivore ecology. If necessary, staff can visit your farm to provide a detailed of your farm and problem carnivore. NCWG does not promote the killing of carnivores, but instead promotes sustainability and co-existence with carnivores and livestock farming.

Get advice if you notice unusual activity or behaviours that could be a sign the carnivore is sick or injured and may be unable to hunt normally.
