The Republic of Namibia Joins the CIC as State Member

The International Council for Game and Wildlife Conservation CIC proudly announced that the Republic of Namibia has become a State Member of the CIC. The official declaration of the Namibian Government was sent to CIC President Bernard Loze in October. The Republic of Namibia decided on the CIC membership after a high-level government mission participated in the 60th CIC General Assembly and the World Forum on Sustainable Hunting in Budapest, Hungary earlier this year. The Honorable Uahekua Herunga, Minister of Environment of Namibia, addressed the CIC General Assembly in the Hungarian Parliament. John Kasaona, a Namibian conservation champion of world-fame, inspired the audience with a captivating rendition of the conservation successes in his country.

This last October Bernard Loze visited Namibia with CIC Director General, Tamç–½ Marghescu, and President of the CIC Policy and Law Division, Jan Heino. The CIC delegation participated in the 19th Session of the African Forestry and Wildlife Commission of the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations in Windhoek,

The Republic of Namibia is one of the leaders in sustainable wildlife management on the African continent. With about a third of its territory under conservation, and an extremely rich biodiversity, Namibia has always nurtured and balanced the protection and sustainable utilization of its wild resources. Its communal conservancy program has delivered outstanding conservation successes benefitting the environment, society and economy of the country. The exemplary cooperation of the private, public and community sector is a strong pillar of Namibia's conservation success.

The CIC officially recognized Namibia's conservation endeavors in 2012 at the 11th Conference of Parties to the Convention on Biological Diversity by awarding the Markhor Prize for its Community Based Natural Resources Management Programme. Namibia represents an example of a country empowered by conscious and sustainable conservation practices. The CIC is very proud to welcome Namibia amongst its State Members!

Played rookie league for the Yankees in Paintsville after winning the College World Series at Fullerton State, in1979. All I could think about was the movie “Deliverance”- lived up in a hollow with some other players. Refused to go on a moonshine run because it was a dry county-no way. Met some of the nicest people on the planet there! Van Lear the home of Loretta Lynn was highlight of summer LOL.

Mule deer and Colorado elk seasons almost done! Hunters driving farm roads, looking for racks, their PH driving them along, I ask that you not pull into my drive. The buck behind me, on the boundary line of the GMU somehow knows. The hunter laughs, I would invite you in to see my Searcy rifles but social distancing prevails, darkness arrives and the buck slides away into secret tree grove...
