Drought forces Namibia to auction at least 1,000 wild animals — including elephants and giraffes — in order “to protect grazing and at the same time to also generate much needed funding for parks and wildlife management.”

Drought-hit Namibia has authorised the sale of at least 1,000 wild animals — including elephants and giraffes — to limit loss of life and generate $1.1 million for conservation, the authorities confirmed Saturday.

The authorities declared a national disaster last month, and the meteorological services in the southern African nation estimate that some parts of the country faced the deadliest drought in as many as 90 years. In April, an agriculture ministry report said 63,700 animals died in 2018 because of deteriorating grazing conditions brought on by dry weather.They include 600 disease-free buffalos, 150 springbok, 65 oryx, 60 giraffes, 35 eland, 28 elephants 20 impala and 16 kudus — all from national parks.
