The adoption of non lethal and cost effective farming management tools can be very effective for a farmer if used correctly. The knowledge of predators that one live side by side with, can have a positive impact in ones’ farming efforts while an integration of these tools do come in handy. CCB community outreach team has been working tirelessly with the fragile communities of the Ghanzi area in supporting and sharing with them on how they can adapt their farm management for the safety of their livestock from predators. CCB outreach team, in partnership with Ghanzi Department of Wildlife and National Parks, hosted a farmer's workshop on the 18th October 2016 at CCB Tiisano Camp in Ghanzi, to impart knowledge and information with farmers from Qabo and Zutshwa. 30 farmers were introduced to various subjects regarding the care of livestock, knowledge of local predators, range land management, factors influencing stock theft and prevention, different farm management tools and correct identification of predators. Farmers participated very well during the workshop proceedings, asked questions, shared ideas and went back rich in knowledge, happy and motivated. Our thank you’s goes to the farmers, different key partners in conservation that made presentations as well as the CCB team for making sure the message reaches our target audience in full force. The inspiration we get from all stakeholders involved in forums like this gives us hope and keeps us going.
