support needed for wildlife boreholes
Having just returned from the field, we wanted to share some of the camera trap results from one of the two remote wildlife boreholes we recently activated. These boreholes are vital to mitigating the impact of drought and habitat loss on Western Ngamiland's last free-ranging wildlife populations. Your help is needed to ensure they are adequately maintained, monitored and safeguarded during the current drought period.
Below: Video of a dilapidated section of the Botswana-Namibia border fence-line west of the western borehole. Such areas are becoming increasingly porous to free-ranging wildlife, but much greater movement between the two countries would be possible by completely removing sections of the fence in the remote areas - something we strongly advocate to reduce fence-related impacts and facilitate regional wildlife recovery.
