2014 Botswana Hunting Ban was Ill-Informed
A study by University of Botswana academic, Professor Joseph Mbaiwa, has found that the 2014 hunting ban was not supported by scientific evidence, suggesting that the ban was a political decision.

Marble Rhino Project - Update No. 5

Our 'Horning Ceremony' at the Franco Namibia Cultural Centre, saw the birth of OUR Namibia rhino today.
Gé Pellini completed his marvellous piece of art and his friends David and Christelle Deflin sponsored the aluminium horn that was fitted to OUR rhino today. The horn is a full 3 metres in length and was made in France.
MERCI Gé!! MERCI to the Deflins!

We also used today's opportunity to thank all our generous sponsors and supporters.
Most of us watched the sculpting grow from a mere drawing, then formed and chiselled into a magnificent marble wonder over the last four weeks.
What started off as a bright idea ended in a marvellous accomplishment - a truly unique Namibian hand crafted piece of art. We thank everyone involved from the bottom of our hearts for making this project possible.

We congratulate Elisia Nghidishange (College of the Arts), winner of the Student category as well as Lydia Simeon (Academia Secondary Scool) winner of the Scholar category for their devotion and effort put into creation winning them an awesome N$10,000.00 voucher each, compliments of Namibia Wildlife Resorts.

Our rhino will be transported from its place of birth to the venue of our prestigious Gala Evening, the Windhoek Country Club, where it will be auctioned off to its new owner on Thursday night, 31st of August.
