  • ReconAfrica: Elephanatics Letter to Canadian Government

    ReconAfrica is a Canadian oil and gas company with rights to drill for oil in Namibia and Botswana. It is proven that the exploration of petroleum has routinely been accompanied by ecological harm, and has often been the pretext for conflicts. The exploration area in Namibia and Botswana borders three national parks, the Okavango River, and the Okavango Panhandle, which supplies water to the unique Okavango Delta, a UNESCO World Heritage site.

  • Elephants – Economies – Ecosystems = Biodiversity

    What is the value of protecting Biodiversity?

    “Biodiversity is an all-encompassing term for what many regard as nature-related risk. It includes the food we eat, the soil, clean water supplies, landscapes, and forests. Nature-related risk affects all those who rely on nature’s services in their supply chains, from fashion, to farming and construction. Today our concern is climate risk; tomorrow it will be about biodiversity and everything that is beyond carbon.”
