Maskers vir bewaring

’n Wenresep is ontwikkel wat natuurbewaringspogings sowel as die geveg teen Covid-19 gaan versterk.

Met die Covid-19-pandemie op hande het die gesigmasker’n deel van die ‘voel-voel aan jou sakke of alles daar is’-roetine geword.

Die behoefte aan maskers het egter ook die Masked Africa-projek die lig laat sien.

Meer as 1 200 maskers is reeds vervaardig en kan volgens ’n spesiale prysstruktuur aangeskaf word. Hoe meer maskers jy koop, hoe minder betaal jy daarvoor.

Studente van die Ongula Academy maak die maskers in Masked Africa se reeks en die winste word aan natuurbewaring geskenk. Die begunstigdes is Intellegence Support Against Poaching (ISAP), die Namibia Nature Foundation, die Desert Lion Project (DLP), Elephant-Human Relations Aid (EHRA) en die Giraffe Conservation Foundation (GCF).

“Ons wil Namibië se wilde diere beskerm. Daar is baie fokus op spesifieke diere, maar alle diere het tot ’n sekere mate beskerming nodig,” sê Oliver Ahrens, ’n direkteur van Masked Africa.

Maskers word hoofsaaklik in grootmaat verkoop, met die gedagte dat dit ook in die bekamping en die verspreiding van Covid-19 sal help.

“Die idee is dat maatskappye maskers aanskaf vir werknemers of dit skenk aan minderbevoorregtes.”

Dit eindig egter nie net by maskers nie, sê Ahrens. “Dit gaan ook oor werkskepping. Ons wil hê die inisiatief moet ’n blywende impak op beide mens en dier hê.”
