Today, Prince Harry, The Duke of Sussex launched a global campaign in partnership with environmental non-profit Re:wild that aims to halt oil drilling in southern Africa’s Okavango River Basin. Home to hundreds of thousands of people, critically endangered wildlife, and a UNESCO World Heritage site, the fragile yet vibrant Okavango ecosystem is being threatened by corporate oil exploration that could lead to devastating ecological consequences.
As part of this campaign, The Duke has co-authored an opinion piece in The Washington Post with Namibian environmental activist Reinhold Mangundu, with the two calling for an immediate moratorium on oil and gas drilling in the region. They join a number of activists, environmental leaders, public figures, and local voices who are standing together with communities across Namibia and Botswana. The group is also urging people from around the world to join them by signing their names to an open letter in support of protecting this vital natural landscape.
Please join us in safeguarding this exceptional place.
