CEPF: Nations Move to Preserve Resources

Sunday, 31 January 2010 Hits 1848 Categories Habitat News

The 2.6-million-hectare park remained virtually untouched for more than 100 years while under the control of mining companies who limited access. It is a refuge for nearly 25 percent of Namibia’s plant species.
