Livestock guarding dogs (LGDs) have a long and fascinating history with mankind, spanning thousands of years. Anywhere that you find humans raising livestock, you’re likely to discover a specialized breed of LGD dutifully living and working alongside their masters. CCB has adopted this technique as one of their initiated mitigation strategies in tackling human-wildlife conflict in Botswana, especially with cheetahs. So far, CCB has placed around 40 LGDs with farmers experiencing conflict in the Ghanzi farms alone. To boost morale of the LGD recipients and to provide support, CCB hosted a workshop in Ghanzi on the 21st of May 2018 which was attended by 50 farmers to share and exchange ideas on how to improve the LGD program, how to improve LGD training and care as well as hear testimonies from recipients. The workshop went very well. LGDs are seen as an effective conflict mitigation technique to be used to successfully reduce livestock loss to depredation and promote coexistence with carnivores, especially cheetahs. We are looking forward to continuing the support we extend to these network members so that they can strive to find ways to improve their livelihoods through farming.
