Nature Conservancy project web site
From the Nature Conservancy's Expedition Namib site
The international organization, Nature Conservancy, uses multimedia effectively on its web site to publicise its projects. A recent example is the Expedition Namib -- a project to map and assess proposed national park work in the Namib -- the Kunene Region National Park – Skeleton/Etosha Link -- that would protect priority habitat for lions, elephants, rhinos, cheetah and oryx. The Conservancy's partners in the project are Save the Rhino Trust, Round River Conservation Studies and Namibia's Ministry of Environment and Tourism. The site takes the form of a diary of the expedition with links to photographs, videos, satellite images and slideshows.
A recent news story from Namibia's Ministry of Environment and Tourism reports that Etosha National Park is filled with water for the first time in a decade.
