WWF Namibia, on behalf of the Kavango Zambezi Transfrontier Conservation Area (KAZA TFCA) Secretariat and Partner States, is seeking bids from of experienced aerial wildlife survey professionals to provide aircraft, pilots, and observers to participate in the KAZA-wide coordinated survey.

The surveys will be conducted following the designated survey design and in accordance with the CITES MIKE Aerial Survey Standards (version 3), and will be coordinated by the KAZA Secretariat to occur synchronously to ensure transboundary elephant populations are effectively counted.

The contract term will cover the period from July 01, 2022 to October 31, 2022. This timeframe makes provision for participation in a pre-survey training workshop and the survey execution.
