    ReconAfrica is a Canadian oil and gas company with rights to drill for oil in Namibia and Botswana.

  • 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.”

  • Help Sponsor Mara Elephant Rangers
