Re-Wilding Namibia's farmland
The renowned conservationist Ian Craig and the leading mega-fauna veterinary Pete Morkel recently secured 45,000 hectares of land for the sole purpose of conserving Namibia’s wildlife. Their vision is to ecologically restore the land, link up with neighbouring conservancies and one day turn the greater protected area into a National Park and a home for Namibia's endangered wildlife.
Oana's habitat is semi-arid mountainous desert in the Nama-Karoo biome encompassing 50km stretch of the Orange River. We are home to some of the most iconic species of flora and fauna such as the Quiver tree, the African leopard, the Greater Kudu, Brown Hyena, Caracal, Oryx, Honey badger, Aardvark, Giant Kingfisher and the African Black Eagle.
Later this month, Jay will be travelling to Namibia to spend three weeks in the desert supporting Oana in their plans to develop this wonderful national park. The group will be spending time helping to prepare the park through tasks such as the removal of old ranch fencing as well as doing research on plant, insect and animal life.
Whilst we are funding Jay's trip, it's important that we can contribute financially to Oana as well as just the physical help on the ground that Jay and his group will provide. In two weeks Jay will be doing a three day cycling/wild camping trip with some friends from school to help prepare physically and mentally for the trip.
Any donation is most gratefully received and will give Jay plenty of motivation for heading out on his adventure.
Many thanks :)
