The World Wildlife Fund (WWF) has urged the Namibian government not to approve additional environmental impact assessments (EIAs) around Reconnaissance Energy Africa's exploration of the Okavango Basin until a holistic strategic environmental assessment (SEA) has been conducted and the full implications of exploration have been assessed. ReconAfrica plans to drill oil and gas wells in an environmentally sensitive, protected area that supplies the Okavango Delta with water. The drilling location sits on the banks of the Okavango River in the newly proclaimed Kavango Zambezi Transfrontier Conservation Area (Kaza).
