Wild Africa Fund, an organisation dedicated to popularising wildlife conservation across Africa, is excited to announce its strategic partnership with OneAfrica in Namibia. This collaboration, officially launching on May 30th 2024, has already commenced with the broadcast of ‘Music for Wildlife’ concerts from Saturday 25 May

This multifaceted partnership spans both television and radio, leveraging the extensive reach
and influence of One Africa to amplify Wild Africa Fund’s conservation efforts.

Since 1970, Africa has experienced a dramatic decline in its wildlife populations, losing nearly
two-thirds of its animal species. This alarming reduction is primarily attributed to poaching,
habitat loss, and human-wildlife conflict. The rapid growth of human populations and
expansion of agricultural activities have significantly encroached on natural habitats,
exacerbating the pressure on wildlife.

Namibia, known for its rich biodiversity and expansive landscapes, faces its own set of
conservation challenges. Despite being a leader in community-based conservation efforts, the
country continues to battle poaching, particularly of rhinoceroses and elephants. In recent
years, poaching has surged, driven by the lucrative illegal trade in rhino horn and elephant

Additionally, habitat fragmentation due to infrastructure development and agricultural
expansion poses a significant threat to Namibia’s wildlife. Species such as cheetahs, leopards,
and lions are increasingly coming into conflict with human populations as their natural habitats
shrink. This not only endangers the animals but also impacts the livelihoods of local

Water scarcity is another critical issue, with prolonged droughts affecting both wildlife and
human settlements. As water sources dwindle, competition for this vital resource intensifies,
leading to further strain on Namibia’s ecosystems.

Efforts to combat these challenges include strengthening anti-poaching measures, promoting
sustainable land use practices, and enhancing community involvement in conservation
initiatives. Namibia’s commitment to wildlife protection is evident in its numerous national
parks and conservancies, which cover nearly 42% of the country’s land area. However,
continued support and innovative solutions are essential to ensure the survival of its unique
wildlife heritage for future generations.

Key Initiatives of the Partnership:

  1. Music for Wildlife Concerts: A series of concerts broadcasted every Thursdays @ 20h30
    to raise awareness and engage the public in wildlife conservation efforts. These
    concerts aim to inspire collective action and support for wildlife protection. Some of the
    Namibian artists featured include , but are not limited to, Chikune, Lioness, Jericho,
    Banger Drums, DJ Alba, and KP Illest.
  2. Dr. Marks Animal Show: A new wildlife TV series designed for children, is Inspiring the
