This video says about itself:
Pride of Namibia
1 March 2014
Namibia is home to the greatest wildlife recovery story ever told. Since its birth just over 2 decades ago, the country of Namibia has shown the world how to ensure Africa’s natural legacy while expanding livelihoods.
“Pride of Namibia” tells the story of communities committed to protecting wildlife, of a nation that has enshrined conservation into its constitution, and of the future of responsible travel – tourism that directly benefits the people who give wildlife freedom to roam.
Wow, what an incredible example, I hope more African nations follow this too.
Me, too, Steve. I thought this was really uplifting, and so sensible too. 🙂
While this is admirable, Namibia continues to needless slaughter thousands of seals every year. The organisation SEALS OF NAM is calling for a boycott of Namibia. Please read more on my post @ http://emynow.wordpress.com/2013/10/30/seals-of-namibia-a-club-to-avoid/
Hi Emy. I agree with your article, the slaughter of seals in Namibia needs some positive action. It has nothing to do with fish stocks at all. This is completely profit orientated and has been going on for a long time. If I am not mistaken, there one man behind most of it , the self-styled “King of Seal Killers” – I think his name is Yavuz.. He is Turkish. Let’s hope some of the petitions have some effect. Thanks for coming over and commenting and I apologise for the late reply. Best wishes ~ Amelia 🙂
This is a great story. I participated in an elephant conservation program in Thailand that essentially has the same philosophy and goals… it seems like a very workable and positive solution. One question: I thought I read late last year that the black rhino was extinct? The video claims that it has a rising population of them…
Hi Michael. Sorry for the late rely. I think a lot of people became confused by the news reports. I believe it is the Western black rhino that has become extinct. Other populations are flourishing or as close to flourishing as poaching allows. Here is a great blog I follow, with a short explanation. http://fightforrhinos.com/2014/01/07/is-the-black-rhino-extinct/

A great example of what can work if all the people are involved!
Absolutely! I was rather touched by their total sincerity, as well. Thanks for coming over, my friend ~ Amelia
What a brilliant story. Share this far and wide. What an example to the rest of the world.
Absolutely, James! And obviously the best way forward.
Oh praise the Lord! Can I like this a hundred times??? There is still goodness in the world. Hugs and blessings. Natalie 🙂
This is wonderful, isn’t it, Natalie. It’s so heartening to see ~ Amelia 🙂
