The Minister of Environment, Forestry, and Tourism urged workers at the national parks to maintain the newly renovated facilities in the Kunene and Erongo regions.

Pohamba Shifeta said this during the handover of equipment and inauguration of the four national park facilities at the Cape Cross Seal Reserve, Springbokwasser, Ugab Mund, and Möwe Bay.

The renovations were done at a cost of over N$130 million.

The infrastructure includes newly constructed park management stations, buildings, fencing materials, entrance gates, tools, staff accommodation, power, and water supplies at the facilities.

Shifeta says the facilities will attract more tourists and improve the livelihood of those working at them.

Also speaking at the occasion was the German Ambassador to Namibia, who commended the Namibian government for its continued work to ensure that its people benefit from caring for their natural resources.

Coastal parks and their support zones are sustainably managed, and fair access to their natural resources is ensured, thus contributing to biodiversity conservation and improving the living conditions of the neighbouring communities.
