The programme, allows participants to learn about conservation and the efforts of Botswana and its people through in-class work and outside of class field work. The programme allows American students to learn about conservation during a three-week placement involving direct instruction, field trips, fieldwork, camp fire discussions, and group discussions.
CCB engaged this year’s group of students with discussions about Botswana’s enigmatic wildlife species, their threats and what the best ways are to secure wildlife a safe future. CCB works hard to eliminate the possible extinction of cheetahs in Botswana by facilitating coexistence between cheetahs and the farming community. Coexistence will only be possible if all join in and work together.
Like the American author Keith Farrazzi once said “ Power today comes from sharing information, not withholding it.” We are excited about this new partnership and hope the students will take the conservation message back to their homeland and share it far and wide.
