On a voluntary basis and in order to have conservation fun, CCB hosted UBWCS at Ghanzi Education camp for 5 days, between the dates of 21st – 26th May 2013. The purpose of the visit was to carry out hands-on activities in and around Ghanzi camp, to share ideas, experiences and learning from each other about the environmental issues in Botswana, discussions on wildlife conservation, human wildlife conflict as well as livestock management issues. The volunteers had a friendly debate with Ghanzi based Itekeng Junior School Environmental Club discussing the motion: Endangered Species Should be Protected. UBWCS did a play where issues such as human wildlife conflict, illegal game hunting, corruption, poaching were presented.
The group had an excursion to Dqae Qare San Lodge, Walking for Lions presentation by Marnus Roodbol and a campfire every night where they shared stories and experiences of each and every day. Both the UBWCS volunteers and CCB staff were happy about the outcome from this visit and we are looking forward to having them again at some of our environmental education activities.
