In an interview with LiveScience Dr Naidoo said: "In Africa, wildlife migration is threatened largely by fences that divide Africa into this patchwork of blocks. The beauty of KAZA is that that doesn't exist. Now, we've got this strong scientific basis of a migration of that size — something of that length, and all of it took place within KAZA. We need to preserve that."
"The findings of this study emphasize the importance of transfrontier conservation areas in conservation of the greater landscape" said Pierre Du Preez, Chief Conservation Scientist at MET in Namibia.
In June 2010 the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ), through KfW, committed funding for KAZA TFCA’s development. Peace Parks Foundation was appointed as implementing agent by the partner countries to provide financial management and technical and co-financing support to the KAZA secretariat.
