Cheetah Conservation Botswana’s (CCB) Executive Director, Rebecca Klein and Field Camp Coordinator, Max Seele attended the Wildlife Conservation Network (WCN) expo in October for a week of networking with some of the best wildlife experts and enthusiasts in the world. 2016 marked the 15th anniversary of the expo! San Francisco was the place to be on the 8th October, where supporters and conservationists from all over the world met to hear firsthand information on the efforts by different organisations, as they shared their work, experiences and challenges in their fields of wildlife work. Botswana still holds one of the largest concentrations of cheetahs and CCB presented our grassroots efforts being made to save the species in the country. With fewer than 7000 cheetahs left in the world, this calls for the employment of community coexistence measures. CCB efforts include using a triple approach of scientific research, community outreach and conservation education. This approach emphasises the need to conserve a healthy ecosystem as well as securing the livelihoods of communities that are affected by the conflict between cheetahs, other carnivores and their livestock. Being part of WCN Expo 2016 was a great honour and thank you to WCN and their partners; it is through you that we are able to step closer to our ultimate goal of coexistence.
