The Ministry of Environment, Forestry and Tourism has said that twenty-two rhinos and two elephants have been killed by poachers thus far in 2020. According to Nampa, a report this week by the ministry’s spokesperson, Romeo Muyunda, said 46 rhinos and 13 elephants were poached in 2019, while in 2018, 78 rhinos and 27 elephants were poached. Muyunda stressed that “Even though our rhino population is still healthy, we may end up with no rhinos at one point as they continue to be poached”. The ministry’s spokesperson said Namibia has a population of more than 24 000 elephants, while the number of rhinos cannot be disclosed due to security reasons.
