Original text on this topic:
In the Kaokoveld, an auxiliary game scout system (privately funded by the Endangered Wildlife Trust) was introduced by Garth Owen-Smith, the scouts being supervised by nature conservation officials. These game scouts are appointed by the headman of an area and their duties include reporting on game movements and numbers, reporting vehicles passing through the area and any suspicious happenings. The Damara Representative Council has recognised the international importance of protecting the black rhinoceros. They also support and encourage the view that conservation of the indigenous and consequently well-adapted wildlife in this and habitat has a great potential for tourism, research and long-term utilisation.
