Nature Conservation Amendment law and new fines for admission of guilt
The Deputy Director of Wildlife and National Parks of the Ministry of Environment and Tourism, Mr Johnson Ndokosho, informed us about the changes in the law related to hunting of specially protected game whose penalties have been increased dramatically. In the same vein, he has attached lists of Admission Of Guilt (AOG) Fines for different transgressions which also came into force recently following the signing of the law as amended.

Rhino Sculpting Project - Update No 2
 
Great excitement prevailed at the arrival of the donated marble blocks as delivered to the place of action -  the FNCC - on Tuesday, 18 July.

   
 
A sincere thank you goes to Mr Mark Hoffmann of Namibia Stone Services, the generous donor of the marble originating from Karibib and Mr Jörg Guttzeit of Windhoek Hire Sales and Services, who sponsored the heavy duty off loading as well as the transport of the rhino once completed. (The video can be viewed here)

The Pellinis returned to Windhoek enthusiastically as they had the privilege of experiencing close-up encounters with Namibian Rhinos. This was made possible by the generous support of  Namibia Wildlife Resorts, Save the Rhino Trust and Toyota Gobabis.

Several radio and television interviews were conducted throughout the last days whilst Gé Pellini prepared his work of art for the official opening on Monday, 24 July, when the 
Honourable Minister of Environment and Tourism, Pohamba Shifeta, will officially launch the sculpting at 11h00 on the terrace of the Franco Namibian Cultural Centre (FNCC), Robert Mugabe Avenue.

Please come and join us for this occasion.
The sculpting process can be viewed daily and is open to the public and free of charge. 
The Namibian Broadcasting Corporation (NBC) will update its audience on Sunday, 23 July 2017. Tune in at 20h00 to catch up.

Update of details
If you have recently changed your contact details, please remember to inform the NAPHA Office to update your details accordingly.

 

Dr Louisa Richmond-Coggan, co-ordinator of the NAPHA Leopard Census Project, designed a camera trap stand of which a prototype was built. This means that it is possible to put a camera where ever you want, not relying on natural vegetation.
NAPHA is looking for volunteers to assist with the building of these. A spare fence post was used, for the prototype.

The design and measurements are available from the NAPHA Office.
