The Skeleton Coast at first glance looks like another planet where surely none of earth’s species could possibly survive. But look closer and you will discover an incredible variety of highly specialised and endemic desert species. This is the very reason that this park is so important. The Namib Desert is the second driest desert in the world and considered to be the oldest, so species have had a long time to evolve into the incredible creatures they are today. But just as you come to terms with the lunar landscape of hidden creatures, quite bizarrely an elephant or kudu appears on the beach, having followed one of the ephemeral rivers that seasonally spill into the Atlantic along the coastline. Initially, we plan to support the rehabilitation of this park where trucks have scarred some of the landscape leading into the park. Then after that, where to begin in further understanding this amazing ecosystem?!
