Wildlife is one of Africa’s greatest resources and offers opportunities that could help lift millions out of poverty.
Yet wild animals are disappearing due to poaching and habitat loss across the continent. Namibia has taken a different road: our wildlife has more than doubled since the 1980’s, thanks to local community action.

IRDNC has played a leading role in this African success story
since the very beginning.
