    Namibia - Cabinet approves the hunting of black rhino males

    The Namibian Cabinet approved the hunting of five male black rhino males to be hunted between 2013 and 2017 on concessions which are on state-owned land outside registered conservancies. The approved concessions are Mahango Core Area and Mangetti National Park in the Western Kavango, Waterberg Plateau Park, Daan Viljoen and Von Bach Parks and Naukluft Area, which is part of the Namib Naukluft Park. The concessions will be awarded through a tender process. The "National Policy on Tourism and Wildlife Concessions on State Land" provide directives and guidelines and trophy hunting. The revenue has been reinvested in wildlife conservation and management through the Game Trust Fund. The same policy also provided incentives for black economic empowerment within the trophy hunting industry. The Ministry of Environment and Tourism awards hunting concessions for a period of five years but with the condition that the ministry will reserve the right to renew the contract after three years as well as to adjust quotas as information is collected about the status of the indicated wildlife populations. To protect the local hunting industry from unlawful operators and to minimize risks, the ministry will announce the Conditions of Sale before the auction. In Namibia, trophy hunting takes place on commercial farms and communal registered conservancies as well as in proclaimed protected areas and on other state land.

    I hope the tender process is fair and done properly to ensure that legitimate operators get these permits.

    If not, I wonder which Vietnamese/Thai Prostitute (trophy hunter) will be heading to Namibia to do these hunts or buy the permits at a discount through an unscrupulous operator! Not that I'm distrusting of the creativity of Rhino poachers.
    Practice whispering before you leave for Africa!
