BENEFITING: BIOSPHERE EXPEDITIONS

THE STORY:

This project is all about safeguarding some of Africa’s most iconic animals such as the leopard, elephant and cheetah. Almost all of Africa is under some sort of human impact and Namibia is no exception. Sound scientific knowledge is key to mitigate this conflict and to make wise management decisions that balance the need of humans, wildlife and the environment. Therefore this project studies the ecology of leopard, cheetah, caracal, elephant and game species with the ultimate goal of using the knowledge gained in conflict mitigation work for the benefit of all. Our vision is a thriving and sustainable coexistence of humans and wildlife in Namibia.

This project works for the conservation of

Leopard (Panthera pardus), African elephant (Loxodonta africana), cheetah (Acinonyx jubatus), caracal (Felis caracal).
