The Botswana Conservation Project

The Botswana Conservation Project

Posted by Connor Whelan on 29th Jun 2016

The African continent is an incredibly large and diverse area of our planet that boasts some of the most majestic wildlife and scenery imaginable. For those people who want to take their passion for conservation and apply it in a meaningful and tangible way, donating your time as a volunteer at the Botswana Conservation Project can be a life-changing opportunity. The game reserves and protected habitats in Botswana require a great deal of work to upkeep, and also offer a unique chance to work directly with wildlife.

Illegal poaching, human encroachment and the ravages of climate change are already having a disastrous effect in many areas of Africa, and Botswana is no exception. The Botswana Conservation Project has a strong and clear mission – to ensure protection and safety for endangered and threatened wildlife, while working closely with local communities. As a volunteer in Botswana, you will be able to customize your trip based on a number of factors, including the amount of time you can help out, your physical limitations, and your experience and comfort levels. Your willingness to donate your time and energy is the most important thing when it comes to fulfilling the Project’s conservation mission. There are many different aspects to the project, including wildlife rehabilitation, wildlife courses, and management of animal habitats.

By choosing to work with the Botswana Conservation Project, you will not only be providing essential aid to conservation efforts in need of assistance, but will also be able to experience the incredible scenery and culture of a fascinating new country. Exploring the world isn’t only about sightseeing; engaging with the natural side of your destination, and making a lasting impact is more valuable that any photograph or souvenir.

I was searching for the names of officials responsible for the wildlife conservation now that the former president is no longer head of this department.
