On Saturday, Sorris-Sorris Conservancy hosted a gala dinner – the first of its kind for conservancies in Namibia. Many conservancies struggle to cover their basic operating costs, yet Sorris-Sorris is the first to try a new way of raising funds. The objectives of the gala dinner were: to assist the conservancy with funds for human-wildlife conflict; to put money towards building staff accommodation; to help cover the costs for the upcoming Conservancy Cup to be held by the conservancy.

The Namibian Association of CBNRM Support Organisations, NACSO, is gravely concerned over the recent rhino poaching incident in the Uukwaluudhi Conservancy. This is the latest case in a commercial poaching upsurge in Namibia. NACSO is fully aware of the seriousness of the poaching threat facing our country and is working closely with the Ministry of Environment and Tourism (MET) to provide any possible support that can assist in the fight against wildlife crime.
