Namibia has put 40 crocodiles up for sale to reduce conflicts between humans and wildlife in the north-eastern regions of Kavango and Zambezi, local media report.

Those interested in buying the reptiles are expected to submit their tender offers at the ministry of environment by 17 July.

Ministry spokesperson Romeo Muyunda said majority of the country’s wildlife “exists outside national parks”, which had made the regions “continue to experience concerning crocodile attacks on people and their livestock”.

Buyers must prove that they have a suitable habitat for the animals and will incur the cost of capturing them.

Those seeking to import them must have a permit from the respective country.
