An African Success: In Namibia, The People and Wildlife Coexis

I found a very interesting report by Richard Conniff at e360:

Shortly after gaining independence in 1990, Namibia turned ownership of its wildlife back to the people. By using a system of community-based management, this southern African nation has avoided the fate of most others on the continent and registered a sharp increase in its key wildlife populations.
