NamPower/Namibia Nature Foundation Strategic Partnership, April 2014

This issue brings a special focus on some of our power line-sensitive bird species, and in particular on vultures – now under increasing threat due to the decimating effects of the deliberate poisoning of carcasses in an effort to deter these vigilant observers from indicating where poaching activities have been taking place. Well done to the NamPower Aranos team and NARREC for rescuing a young White-backed Vulture that was unable to fly, and to the EWT-Wildlife & Energy Programme for launching the Eskom “Adopt a Vulture” project! We bring further news on the flamingo tracking front: one more Greater Flamingo has been fitted with a GPS satellite tracker; we report on collaboration with a similar initiative in Bolivia; power line incidents involving Marabou Storks in Uganda; the welcome involvement of Swakop Uranium in power line monitoring on the Namibian coast; and power line surveys and incidents that have been reported over the past six months.

NamPower/Namibia Nature Foundation Strategic Partnership, October 2013

In this issue: The NamPower/Namibia Nature Foundation Strategic Partnership is now five years old! The first phase of the project has been occupied in creating awareness about wildlife and power line interactions and their consequences; training; gathering information on such incidents; and developing a multi-disciplinary environmental information service. The focus for the next phase – namely to address the impacts of these incidents, and to plan, implement and monitor mitigation measures – was recently the subject of an important feedback and planning workshop. This issue also brings you update on our flamingo tracking initiative; the bustard and power lines project; and the power line surveys and incidents that have been reported over the past six months.
