Namibia hired poachers to protect animals and allowed communities to have the power to set up conservations. The landscape and wildlife has transformed and now the populations of lions, black rhinos, cheetahs, leopards, mountain zebras, oryx, springbox and more are dramatically increasing. The conservation areas produce about 5.5 million USD a year that goes to fund education, infrastructure, AIDS and HIV research, and more.
