The official launch of Namibia’s newest Ramsar Site will take place today at the Bwabwata-Lower Okavango area.

The site will be launched by the Minister of Environment and Tourism Uahekua Herunga.

Located in Namibia’s northern Kavango region, parts of the southern boundary of the 46,964 ha site are contiguous with the northern boundary of the Okavango Delta Ramsar Site in Botswana.

The Bwabwata–Okavango, home to IUCN Red-Listed species such as elephants, hippos, lions as well as slaty egrets and the endangered grey crowned cranes, supports one of the highest diversities of species in the Zambezian Flooded Savannas ecoregion.

Over 400 species of birds have been recorded, the highest number of any site in Namibia. Namibia’s other four Ramsar Sites include the Orange River Mouth, the Sandwich Harbour, Walvis Bay Lagoon and the Etosha Pan.
