Natural Resources Managers in the making

A group of second-year Nature Conservation students, from the Faculty of Natural Resources and Spatial Sciences, took a 6-day practical excursion to the Waterberg Plateau Park and Etosha National Park.

The purpose of the trip was for the students to gain exposure to the different vegetation zones by assessing veld conditions, observing animal behavior, further investigating the importance of aquatic and hydrological systems for the country.

The group was accompanied by four lecturers from the Faculty.

During the excursion, the students further conducted rangeland condition evaluations in the Waterberg Plateau and Etosha National Parks, as well as activities which enable the estimation of wildlife populations in these areas.

“We visited a number of aquatic systems such as the Otjikoto Lake, Omatako River, Von Bach Dam and the Eastern National Water Carrier which also brought attention to the ongoing water shortage. We also took the initiative to pick up litter when we came across it. It is our duty to keep our environment clean,” said Miya Kabajani, one of the lecturers in the Department.
