Information on the Integrated Rural Development and Nature Conservation (IRDNC), started by Garth Owen-Smith and co-directed with Margaret Jacobsohn.
In Namibia, in 1980 a SA gentleman, Garth Owen-Smith
, went to the NW area and started working with local communities and realized the wildlife was missing, benefits lost, from use, manure, and spiritual/cultural connection.
Asked what could be done.
Also had experience from Owen-Smith
and partner, Margaret Jacobsohn of guard system which seemed to be working.
