Waking up to roaring lions near her doorless dung hut; encountering
elephants while walking with other women to fetch water from a
distant spring; realising that older Himba people saw themselves as
part of nature, not as separated from it nor at its apex ... These
were just some of the experiences that would change the way
Margaret Jacobsohn thought about wildlife conservation – and our
modern deficiency in ecological intelligence. So, the Capetonian
journalist and environmental writer turned researcher became a
Namibian and helped pioneer an African way of doing conservation
Famed for its spectacular landscapes and gloriously unclad
geology, Namibia is a country that wears its skeleton on the
outside, the author says.
Similarly, her story is as gritty and real as Namib sand. The
conflicts and mishaps, the triumphs and breakthroughs – what it
takes to break paradigms and do decades of community based
conservation in remote and inaccessible places, earning some of the
top international environmental awards along the way.
