Wheels for wildlife

08 October 2019 | Environment

United States Ambassador Lisa Johnson handed over two Toyota Land Cruisers to the Combating Wildlife Trafficking in Namibia project managed by the Namibia Nature Foundation (NNF). One vehicle will be used by NNF in the Windhoek area and the other by the Ministry of Environment and Tourism (MET) in Kunene.
The project is the third in a series of three projects funded by the Department of State’s Bureau of International Narcotics and Law Enforcement Affairs (INL) that aims to reduce poaching and trafficking of protected animals and their body parts originating from Namibia. It also works to strengthen Namibia’s domestic criminal justice institutions to successfully carry out enforcement, investigation and prosecution of wildlife crimes.
The project supports the MET and the Namibian Police to implement a comprehensive set of on the ground anti-poaching interventions. The vehicles will be used to improve the projects team mobility in North-West Namibia as well as that of the project management unit.
