From 22-24 May, Gobabeb will be hosting a Biodiversity Action Weekend, in partnership with UNDP, giz, and the Ministry of Environment, Forestry and Tourism. The event is open to all who are interested in the Namib Desert's landscapes and unique biota.
Comfortable accommodation, meals and a variety of interesting and fun activities will mark the weekend.
The Biodiversity Action Weekend will be a venture into citizen science. Science is not just for the specialist! This weekend will be truly action-packed…. You will be able to participate in data gathering for some of the institute’s research projects, catalogue observations on Gobabeb’s iNaturalist sites, assist with management actions like alien-bashing, learn more about ongoing biodiversity initiatives in the Namib and share opinions on our collective roles in protecting our natural heritage - under the theme “We are part of the Solution”, and …. much more!
If you wish to join the Biodiversity Action Weekend, please send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. Accommodation is limited, so book early!
With the cooperation of the Namibia Ministry of Environment, Forestry and Tourism, the United Nations Development Program, and giz (Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit).
