CCB joined and graced the annual Khawa Dune Challenge & Cultural festival for the first time in its five-year history. According to the event organisers, the event attracted over 14 000 spectators and riders, who came out to have fun at the festival. The festival was held at Khawa village and spanned for 4 days (5th – 8th May 2016). CCB staff hosted a stall and actively engaged with the community, spending many hours discussing predator issues with stall visitors. We can safely say Batswana are now realizing the value that wildlife, especially predators, holds for Botswana’s economy, and the need to secure wildlife populations for our future generations. CCB would like to thank the Botswana Tourism Organisation, Khawa Tribal Administration, the residents of Khawa and all those visitors who attended the festival and made it a wonderful experience for the CCB staff. We believe that our being there made a very big difference especially to the local farmers.
