Garth Owen-Smith, co-director of Namibia's Integrated Rural Development and Nature Conservation and a long-time Kaokoveld conservator, is highly critical of the collaring.He believes that further study of the elephants of the Hoarusib River/Purros Conservancy - the animals that have been collared - is unnecessary because 'the movements of [these] ele-phants are better known than any other population in Namibia.They are already being monitored by the Ministry of Environment and Tourism, local tour guides, conservancy game guards and NGOs.'
