Welcome to Botswana!
Our students have hardly been here for a week and we are already out in the bush, beginning our field work and becoming familiar with the natural history of the area. Already we have seen elephants close to camp, lions with cubs, hippos in the river, and giraffe peering at us from behind acacia trees.
We are looking forward to the next three months here and are happy to have such a motivated, excited, smart, and diverse group of students here to assist with our conservation efforts.
More of an update coming soon from our students!
