We work at the highest levels of governments and in national parks and protected areas in the United States and in developing countries around the globe, filling a niche in the conservation arena.

Namibian President Signs Caucus-Backed Bill into Law

Nature Conservation Amendment Act becomes Namibian Law

Namibia’s President signed into law the Nature Conservation Amendment Act, which significantly increases penalties for wildlife crime.

The Act, unanimously passed by the Namibian parliament, raises fines for rhino and elephant poachers from the current maximum of N$200,000 to N$25 million, and increases the fines for illegal possession of protected species to N$10 million from the current N$20,000 and imprisonment of five to ten years. The Namibian Conservation Parliamentary Caucus (NACOPAC) supported the development of political will and expert input for the law through a series of workshops and briefings focused on illegal wildlife trafficking and managing human-wildlife conflict.

NACOPAC is an all-party caucus of Namibian parliamentarians committed to strengthening conservation for sustainable development. The ICCF Group acts as the secretariat to NACOPAC, with support from the Global Environment Facility, UNEP, and local stakeholders including NACSO and the Cheetah Conservation Fund.

Combating Widlife Trafficking

Despite significant and increasing challenges to wildlife protection in Namibia and the region, the government of Namibia continues to prove its commitment to combating illegal wildlife trafficking. In 2016, 135 elephant tusks and pieces and 36 rhino horns were seized by Namibian authorities; this year a further 21 elephant tusks and four rhino horns have been confiscated to date.

Namibia has also taken strides to improve the capacity of its prosecution and investigative teams on handling wildlife crime cases through standardization of processes and protocols. The ICCF Group has supported these initiatives through criminal justice training workshops and the development of an Action Plan and Implementation Road Map for criminal justice capacity-building interventions. Collaborators in this work include Endangered Wildlife Trust, Space for Giants, and Stop Ivory.
