Professor Wouter van Hoven (Ecolife South Africa)

Restoration Wildlife in Angola/Project Ark of Noah

Professor Wouter van Hoven: The 27 year long civil war in Angola has devastated the national parks and wildlife populations of this beautiful country. In cooperation with the Angolan government we planned the return of many locally extinct species including elephant. All animals had to be airlifted, including elephant in family groups and giraffe. We will discuss this operation, how it was planned and the scientific ecology behind it and where it stands today. Two international awards were awarded to Prof. W van Hoven for spearheading this program.
