What is the Namibia Crane Working Group?

The first Namibia Crane Workshop in Etosha in May 2004 was attended by an enthusiastic mix of participants from Namibia and several other countries.

This initiative was a partnership among the Namibia Nature Foundation (NNF), SIDA, the Ministry of Environment and Tourism (MET), the African Wattled Crane Programme (AWAC; a joint project of the International Crane Foundation and Endangered Wildlife Trust in South Africa) and many other supporters.

As a result of a concern for the continued survival of Namibia's crane species and their habitats by workshop participants, we now have a Namibia Crane Action Plan and, equally importantly, a Namibia Crane Working Group (NCWG) to put this plan into action.

The working group is currently funded by the GEF Small Grants Project and UNDP, through NNF.

Our vision: Cranes and people sharing habitats in harmony in Namibia.

Our mission: To conserve cranes and their habitats in partnership with the people who share these habitats.

How can you get involved? Please contact the NCWG coordinators or regional representatives if you would like to support or become involved in our local crane initiatives.
