Video: The Pride of Namibia - Conservation and Tourism
One topic that is of particular interest to me is conservation of wildlife, and the ending of illegal poaching, in Africa, a place I happen to love dearly. The video below is a success story in this regard, focusing on how the relatively young nation of of Namibia found a way to use tourism to boost conservation efforts, and instill a sense of pride in its people. As a result, poaching is significantly lower there than in other parts of the continent, and often seen as a blueprint for improving the situation elsewhere.
