China National Nuclear Corporation (CMMC) Rössing Uranium donated N$50 000 to the non-profit organisation Vulture Namibia, which carries out conservation work with the birds of prey.

Speaking at the handover, Rössing Uranium’s manager of health, safety, environment and prevention services, Jacklin Mwenze, said that the donation was done to support Vulture Namibia in its quest to determine the movement of these birds.

“Vulture Namibia plays an essential role in determining the survival rates of chicks and longevity. The organisation also creates awareness about the plight of vultures and the important part they play in the environment.”

She also said that the mine wants to create a positive impact on biodiversity and contribute to conversation in Namibia at large.

“By supporting such initiatives, Rössing Uranium aims to be the leader in environmental stewardship in Namibia and to maintain our reputation as a responsible corporate citizen.”

She commended Vultures Namibia for the incredible work they do and wished them the best of luck as they set out to execute their mandate in the coming year.

A volunteer for Vultures Namibia, Peter Bridgeford, expressed his gratitude for the donation.

“Thank you very much Rössing Uranium, we really appreciate it.”

Vultures Namibia was established in 1991.

The project is involved in ringing and tagging vultures in Namibia and in creating awareness about their conservation.
