The Torra Bay Consevancy is one of 31 in the Damaraland area and was established in 1993 with the help from Garth Owen-Smith of the Inergrated Rural Development Nature Conservation - IRDNC. One of the more attractive parts of the country it has also been successful in conserving and growing the numbers of game, poaching is virtually non-existant. The community benefits from live game sold, trophy hunting and shooting and selling of venison. Also some hunting for the community within the hunting season. Damaraland Camp is an exclusive lodge owned by Wildernis Safaris and is set in an isolated area of the conservancy, a joint venture with the conservancy sees it getting 10% of the bed fees. The Lodge has been going for 10 years with Lena Florry managing it for the last 8. 20 conservancy members are employed at the lodge as well. Photo: © John Hogg/World Bank
