Pangolin Reward Scheme in Namibia

Namibian Chamber of Environment

In September 2017 the NCE, MET and partners set up a reward scheme for information leading to the arrest of people catching, killing, trading and trafficking Pangolins and Pangolin parts in Namibia. The success of this initiative has exceeded our most optimistic expectations. Attached please find a report setting out the situation.
A large part of this success is due to partnerships. The PRD of NamPol, MET, conservancies, NGOs, media and private sector are working together to spread the message and support the scheme. MET staff in the regions have used radio in local languages to get deep into the villages.
Our ultimate intention is not to have hundreds of people locked up in jail. Rather, we want to reduce the incidents of Pangolin and other wildlife crimes. We now propose a subtle change in the messaging. The message now is, (i) law enforcement, involving close collaboration between MET and NamPol and linked to informer networks and reward schemes, is becoming increasingly effective and making it increasingly unlikely that potential wildlife criminals will get away with their crimes; and (ii) if / when caught, the penalties are now really severe, and bail will be vigorously opposed for foreign nationals. So don’t commit wildlife crimes – the risks are now really high! This is explained in detail in the attached report.
We are working with Venture Media to package this message in many different ways – printed media, radio, TV, social media, animated video clips, etc, to reach not only the general public but also specifically the most rural areas and the Chinese / Asian community in Namibia.

Brown Hyena Project

by Ingrid Wiesel

We usually don’t plan our darting season for the winter time because we are trying to avoid the cold and dark time of the year, as the nights are just that little bit too long to be able to stay awake all night in order to capture hyenas. This year though, the nights were long, but the warm east wind weather made up for it. Our darting team was also quite interesting: Kirk, Max and I as the core team joined by Rachael Hill from the US, Alessandro Alvaro from Italy and Marie Lemerle from France. What a mixture of personalities, traditions and accents, we certainly had some good laughs, for example when deciding whether pasta should be cooked al dente (European, especially Italian way) or soft (US way). We started with setting up bait at E-Bay to fit KC Sowande with a new satellite collar. [Read more]

Our daughter would like to do an Internship on a Hunting or a Guest farm during the course of next year. She is familiar with life on a Hunting farm and Namibia. While she would ideally like to visit from August to October 2019, there is some flexibility as to the timing. She is able and willing to assist with all tasks related to guest care and hospitality, wildlife, field and office work. While an Internship remuneration is not expected, it is requested that she be accommodated at no cost.
Should you be able to accommodate our daughter for this time, please contact Wolfgang Garbaciok at
Thank you in advance.
