Tourism Expo is here!

Preparations are under way, come and meet the community conservation team at the Namibia Tourism Expo from 05-08 June 2019.

NACSO and the Ministry of Environment and Tourism, together with several key conservation organisations, including TOSCO-Tourism Supporting Conservation, CCFN- Community Conservation Fund of Namibia and IRDNC-Integrated Rural Development and Nature Conservation, have teamed up to highlight the importance of community conservation and tourism initiatives in rural communities. The Namibia Tourism Expo will take place from 05-08 June 2019.

Under the Namibia Tourism Expo’s umbrella theme of the Expo - Recycle, Think Sustainably and Embracing Eco-Tourism – the different stakeholders will be working together to promote the message of “Conserving by Travelling Responsibly”.

Make a turn at the Community Conservation and Tourism stand in Galpini hall and meet with partners who will share with you the efforts being made in communal conservancies to encourage sustainable tourism.

Be part of the conservation story by simply sharing with us your responsible travel story. Take part in our exciting spin the wheel activity to win unique prizes and stand a chance to win a trip for two sponsored by Namibia Wildlife Resorts. You can also pre-share your story on social media via #mystory, and tag the various partners to each post. We look forward to meeting with you.

NEW DEAL FOR NATURE

WWF is pushing for greater activity by governments, industry and people to combat global heating, loss of biodiversity and pollution, calling for A new Deal for Nature. This page will provide links to articles about the crisis facing humanity and the environment.

On the Edge. Evolutionary Distinct and Globally Endangered provides the acronym "edge" for some species in danger, like the solenodon. This small mammal has been around since the time of the dinasaurs, but could soon go the same way: extinct. And why? Because humans are destroying habitat for wild animals by increasing farm land, building roads and cutting forests.
