Margaret Jacobsohn and Garth Owen-Smith, internationally recognized conservationists, share their insights on ways to protect the world's last wild places - and how devolving rights to communities more than doubled land for wildlife in Namibia.

Namibian conservationist Garth Owen-Smith pioneered community-based conservation in the early 1980s in response to massive commercial poaching, including rhino and elephant, in southern Africa. Dr. Margaret Jacobsohn is a Namibian writer, anthropologist and community-based conservation specialist.
