At the end of September, Cheetah Conservation Botswana held its first Conservation Bush Camp since we have taken over the running of the Tiisano Education Centre. Fifteen students from the Lehutshelo Junior Secondary School Conservation Club came to the CCB camp in Ghanzi for 3 days of fun and conservation education organised by CCB’s Education Officer William Mooketsi and Ghanzi Camp Coordinator, Gavin Reynolds. The students were introduced to a range of ideas including basic ecology, predator conservation and predator friendly farming, as well as having fun on the ropes course, playing football and especially splashing in the pool. William and Gavin were particularly impressed by the intelligence and excellent behaviour of the students which was a credit to their teacher Mr Keiteitotse. CCB aims to host regular education courses at our Tiisano Education Bush Camp to help spread the word of conservation, teaching people about healthy environments and the crucial role that predators play in the ecosystem.
