Open letter to the Minister of Environment and Tourism, all Farmers' Associations and all Tourism Organisations

To the Minister of Agriculture, Water and Forestry, the Minister of Environment and Tourism and to all Farmers’ Associations and Tourism Associations in Namibia
Our beautiful country is facing a serious threat – we have to contend with recurring droughts and resultant increasing desertification and our land is in great danger of being taken over by various kinds of cactus plants or prickly pears.
All cactus plants originate from the tropical regions of the Americas. Here in Namibia they find excellent growing conditions but no natural enemies at all. Birds and small mammals eat the fruit and spread the seeds. Any piece of the plant coming to lie on the soil roots and grows at a fast rate.
Cactus plants are a serious threat to farming – look at the accompanying photo:
  • Can you imagine either beast or human being to walk among such a dense cover as seen near Sinclair road in the heart of Windhoek?
  • These plants crowd out our indigenous grazing.
  • Their prickles or thorns cause painful sores on our live stocks’ mouths and abscesses in their stomachs and eventually kill them
  • Our animals cannot penetrate the thick growths of cacti and they cannot eat these plants
  • Smaller creatures get stuck in or on the thorns and die a slow and cruel death
Cactus plants such as these are a serious threat to tourism. Imagine our World Heritage Site Twyfelfontein, Heroes’ Acre, the beautiful and diverse vegetation of the Waterberg, Etosha, the Brandberg area  – imagine all these very special places overgrown by spiny cactus plants!
