Namibia: Angelina Jolie in Namibia | Анжелина Джоли в Намибии


During her whirlwind visit, Angelina Jolie Pitt not only got the chance to witness the results of the Jolie Pitt Foundation’s partnership with the sanctuary, but the many facets of vital work encompassed by N/a’an ku sê's commitment to conserving all things inherent to Namibia, were discussed in-depth. These include the rescue of threatened wildlife, research to prevent human-wildlife conflict and providing education and healthcare to the San Bushman community.

Angelina also spoke with the President of the Republic of Namibia, Dr. Hage Geingob, and First Lady, Monica Geingos, while at N/a’an ku sê, and expressed her desire to work through the N/a’an ku sê Foundation with the government on making Namibia a world leader in conservation. Angelina said: “It is an honour for our family to be able to support N/a’an ku sê’s mission to conserve the land, cultures and wildlife of Namibia and to rescue threatened species. I look forward to working even more closely with Marlice and Rudie in the years to come, and with the government of Namibia, to build on the success and effectiveness of these projects, which hold many inspiring lessons for conservation around the world”.
