Protecting Elephants in Botswana
News of poaching in Botswana has caught the world’s attention. Whether figures have been blown out of proportion as reported, or not, we all need to come together and support elephants in Botswana to ensure their future safety and survival.
As a sustainable and ethical travel company, The African Wild actively encourages the government of Botswana to wisely invest resources into the protection of the country’s elephants. We are happy to note a positive response from the government in recent weeks with their pledge to ensure hunting bans continue, and elephant protection being pushed forward on the political agenda.
Still more needs to be done, and we need your help. Unequivocally, the best way you can directly support elephants in Botswana is to travel to the country. When you travel with a responsible and sustainable tour group such as The African Wild, the money you spend directly translates into efforts to protect national parks and the elephants that live within them. We also now offer our clients the chance to visit communities in areas affected by elephants and learn what you can.
By choosing to travel to Botswana, you are choosing to support the only country in Africa that actively promotes wildlife protection. By traveling with a responsible company, you support both the elephants and the communities that are effected by their presence. By visiting you get to form your opinion. Visit Botswana and help to spread the word.
