Program Description:
ZebrasBotswana is teeming with wildlife. Exotic birds and elephant herds range through acacia forests, lions hunt the savannah, and hippos bob in wide rivers. The Okavango Delta, one of the largest inland deltas in the world, was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2014. For reasons yet unknown, many of its iconic wildlife populations are in decline. To begin to understand these declines, Round River students are assisting the Okavango Community Trusts with wildlife surveys and rare and threatened bird monitoring. Working closely with local instructors and guides to accomplish these important wildlife and habitat studies, students also assist with training, capacity building, and community outreach activities. Join Round River to experience one of the world’s most abundant ecosystems. You will thrive on the invaluable educational opportunities of working alongside the stewards of this rich landscape, while surrounded by wildlife and immersed in the culture and its people.
