Don't fence them in
Issue 5 (November 2009) Another step has been taken to achieve a fence-free Namib Desert.

 

Fences are coming down between the NamibRand Nature Reserve and the neighbouring Kulala Nature Reserve. This will allow movement of animals across the area. Together the reserves make up 210,000ha of land.


Kulala is owned by Wilderness Safaris, and both organisations have agreed to work together in the interest of conservation. In future, wildlife management and research within this area will be carried out on a cooperative basis.


Similar schemes between other neighbours are planned as part of the Action for a Fence Free Namib Desert initiative, an initiative to open and secure a healthy and extensive desert ecosystem.
