Namibia: reward for Palmwag rhinos and photos

#RewardforRhinos
A reward of N$100 000 is offered for information which will lead to the arrest of the person/s involved in recent poaching of rhinos at Palmwag concession area.
The reward funds was partly donated by the public and will be handed over by the police.
Save The Rhino is actively involved in protecting rhino population in Namibia and specifically in the Palmwag concession area.
 

Pamphlets printed in Otjiherero, Damara/Nama and English with information on procedures related to reporting rhino poaching were distributed in Kunene Region of Namibia this year.

Last year more than 20 rhinos were lost due to poaching in Namibia. Recently a rhino cow and her calf were poached in the Palmwag concession area. Recent decision to dehorn Namibia's rhinos is an attempt to combat the rhino poaching crisis in the country.

Namibia's tourism industry is the third largest contributor to the country's GDP, and the killing of iconic wildlife such as rhinos and elephants negatively impacts on Namibia's reputation as a tourist destination.
