Brigitte’s Pick: FW: Conservation Trust Namibia


Hugh Paxton’s Blog thinks that if Brigitte is involved, it is going to be a rather welcome, feisty sort of affair with lots of bad language and rum and cokes! If it saves eles, rhinos, local people’s livelihoods, keep things intact, then I’m on board. New thinking, new ideas, new energy always welcome Kings and Queens on the strategic conservation chess board! A bishop or two would be influential and welcome (Tutu, that’s what I call a bishop, or an archbishop) and every quest wouldn’t work without a knight. The pawns are only too apparent. Castles? That’s where the decision making rooks hide hoping this sort of initiative doesn’t start.

The Next Generation

Conservation Trust Namibia

Join us:

the time has come…
The Next Generation Conservation Trust Namibia is one of the most ambitious efforts in the war on rhino and elephant poaching in Namibia.

Funded and driven by the Namibian business community, this not-for-profit trust has as its sole aim to put large swatches of Namibia under constant aerial surveillance.

High tech Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) are deployed in problem areas and either stay in the vicinity of protected animals to detect poachers in the area, or patrol conservancies and reserves to detect potential poachers – day and night.

Once poaching or illegal activity is detected, ground forces are dispatched to the exact GPS location of the perpetrators.

Your support is also needed in this ambitious effort to conserve our animals for the next generation.

Please support us.
