Help Create Botswana’s Future Conservation Leaders!

Nature and wildlife conservation begins with people. The best people to protect a region’s natural resources come from local communities. They are the ones who best understand the wildlife and nature in their own backyards. They understand the human culture that interacts with the environment and the political processes that control environmental protection.

However in Botswana and other places in Africa, young people who are interested in conserving their wildlife heritage may not have the means to get sufficient education and training. SAVE helps students who are passionate about wildlife conservation and want to become skilled wildlife researchers, conservationists, and the policy makers who will work to protect Botswana’s environment.

Your donations help support student tuitions, course materials, research equipment for fieldwork, and more. A year of study at the University of Botswana, for example, cost about $8400 in 2012.
