PEOPLE & WILDLIFE
ALLROUND PROTECTION OF ECO SYSTEMS
All our AP4D programs and training courses are not only aimed at the conservation of some iconic species, such as elephant and rhino. Our goal is to protect habitats and eco systems with their entire biodiversity of animals and plants. Regions in Africa that used to be rich in wildlife are now completely empty due to poaching, and apart from livestock there is no longer any animal life there. In many places, the flora has also been severely damaged or even destroyed to an alarming extent by illegal logging or overexploitation. AP4D Wildlife Protection Rangers are selected and trained to combat the destruction of all of these natural resources and natural treasures.
WILDLIFE PROTECTION TRAINING FOR CONSERVATION
The past has shown that even the best workshops and the best "persuasion work" regarding the value of nature and wild animal protection are not enough to stop criminals who want to enrich themselves through poaching. Only “anti poaching” in conjunction with the protection of habitats can permanently prevent the overexploitation of nature and wild animals. - The value of all forms of tourism and other forms of responsible and sustainable use of natural resources for the benefit of the local communities and the whole Namibian nation is also of immense importance.
WILDLIFE PROTECTION TRAINING FOR SOCIAL AND ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT
By creating jobs "in the countryside", our wildlife protection training programs help reduce the negative consequences of the "rural exodus" to cities. In addition, the rangers we train become “ambassadors” of wildlife protection in their own communities and thus have a positive influence as role models for the younger generation.
WILDLIFE PROTECTION TRAINING FOR GENERAL CRIME PREVENTION
Through the intense and broad training of our wildlife protection rangers, they can contribute to the general fight against crime in the area of operation as well as in their communities - to the protection of law and order and thus to the well-being of people and the entire nation.
