Water for all

SAVE wildlife corridor revitalisation project awarded by the government of Botswana.

We were extremely happy to receive an award for our wildlife corridor project from the Department of Wildlife and National Parks (DWNP) in Botswana!

This project is about the revitalisation of a total of 80 kilometres of wildlife corridors where elephants, zebras and wildebeests roam in their seasonal search for water. Due to the increasing drought, more and more waterholes are drying up. When the animals destroy water reservoirs in villages in their search for water, conflicts with villagers who also depend on water occur again and again.

A year later, the wildlife camera shows that the animals are excellently accepting the water hole, which is operated by a solar-powered pump. In this way, we are not only saving many animal lives, but the waterhole also equalises the human-wildlife conflict.

Now we are planning two more boreholes along the migration route from the Okavango Delta through the two Makgadikgadi-Nxai-Pan National Parks to the Central Kalahari Game Reserve.

With around 9,000 Euros, we are able to provide water to elephants, wildebeest and zebras along their ancestral migration corridor, saving their lives.
