World Heritage Site and Wildlife Paradise - The Okavango Delta

is in danger!


Dr. Karen Ross, Project Coordinator in Angola and Botswana, says: "The Okavango Delta, a unique natural paradise and home to so many endangered wildlife species, is in great danger. We rely on your support to protect this World Heritage Site."


Dr. Antonio Chipita, Executive Director at ACADIR in Angola, added: "If we continue to treat the Okavango Delta in this way and do nothing to stop its destruction, the Delta will die. We want to prevent that!"

A paradise is in danger

The unique landscape in the Kubango-Okavango Basin in Botswana has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 2014. But in Angola, the people in the rural communities suffer from great poverty after a civil war that lasted three decades. As a result of necessity, the population uses the delta uncontrollably as a water resource and for income from unregulated tourism. Forests are being cut down for charcoal production, agriculture and overgrazing by cattle are increasing, and illegal fires are destroying the fragile natural paradise.

There is a different way

To improve the situation and protect the valuable ecosystem and the habitat of countless wild animals, we have started a project in the Angolan part of the Okavango River region. The aim is to reduce poverty among the population, promote economic development and regulate the use of water resources.

Using local know-how for sustainable nature conservation

The Kalahari Conservation Society in Botswana and the ACADIR association in Angola are our experienced partners in the project. With our combined knowledge of the land, the people and the problems, together we create sustainable and ecological solutions for agriculture and forestry, improve the living conditions of the people and thus safeguard the Okavango Delta, which is so unique.

Environmental problems and climate change threaten people and nature equally. Only together we can manage to preserve the foundations of life for future generations. Your help makes the difference! Act now - thank you very much for your commitment!
