COLORADO SPRINGS — Colorado Parks and Wildlife is hosting a special guest over the next few weeks at it's various offices across the state.

Loretha Tsuseb is the Head of Wildlife in the African nation of Namibia. She has made her way to Colorado and will spend the next two weeks learning from our wildlife managers about ways to protect animals in her country.

She said her officers share many of the same problems wildlife officers here do. One issue officers here deal with is critical in her homeland.

"The major problem is poaching, especially of the big mammals, and then there's the human wildlife conflicts," Tsuseb said.

After this visit, managers from the Centennial State will be going to Namibia as part of the US State Department's Wildlife Exchange Program.
