The park already had eight giraffes, to which 14 new animals have now been added, says Angop.

Remember that in July last year, the park had already received 14 giraffes, of which three ended up dying due to climate issues, according to the head of the Environment department.

"Next week we will release 14 more giraffes, as three giraffes out of the first 14 that we received in July 2023 died due to climate reasons," she said.

On a three-day working journey to Namibe, Ana Paula de Carvalho made it known that the tourism support infrastructures in the aforementioned park are scheduled to open next week, adding that, next Wednesday, the inauguration of infrastructures capable of accommodating more than 80 people will take place, consisting of bedrooms, offices, kitchens, leisure areas, among others, writes Angop.

According to a statement from the Ministry of the Environment, to which VerAngola had access, in the province, the minister was received by the minister of Namibe, Archer Mangueira, and her agenda includes "preparations for the inauguration of the new headquarters of the Iona National Park".

"The inauguration of the infrastructures built in the National Park represents a renewed commitment to environmental preservation and sustainable development", the note also reads.
