Responsible tourism: Botswana wildlife conservation expedition

Environment

The DWNP has initiated a constructive feedback system which supports adaptive management decisions and a long term wildlife monitoring vision.

This will, for the first time, provide a standardized approach to monitoring at a regional and national level, allowing informed decisions to be made by the DWNP with regards to conservation management at a national level.

The overall objective of the protocol is to establish a greater understanding of the patterns and underlying processes of herbivore population demographics in the dynamic ecosystems of Botswana. The Khwai section of the study feeds into a wider study, which includes the whole of Ngamiland.
The project aims - WILDLIFE:
- To standardize data collection methods.
- To actively monitor the ecosystems in order to identify any issues or underlying process that threaten the system.
- To provide ‘active’ feedback to responsible parties.
- To understand how other data collection methods can be used to build or support the current protocol.
- To support research efforts through the Standardized Natural Resource and Wildlife Monitoring Protocol.

Volunteers will gain an in-depth knowledge and understanding of the wildlife population and eco-system of the delta. The camp that they stay in is run from sustainable sources - on solar power for electricity and water from the river.

Community

The overall objective of the project is to establish a greater understanding of the patterns and underlying processes of herbivore population demographics in the dynamic ecosystems of Botswana. The Khwai section of the study feeds into a wider study, which includes the whole of Ngamiland.
The project aims from a community perspective include:

- To provide relative wildlife monitoring feedback to the community.
- To train local community and lodge-based guides on the protocol, in order to expand its ‘coverage’.
- Provide a monitoring service free of charge on the community-owned concession.
- Upskilling community escort guides through a rotational and ongoing training programme
- Understand poaching impacts in the wildlife area to educate and inform local communities

Volunteers of the project will play an integral part in this.
