Centre for Conservation of African Resources: Animals, Communities and Land use. CARACAL is a field based non-profit, non-governmental organization, which was started in 2001 in recognition of the need to integrate traditional and scientific understanding of natural resources and promote partnership between Government and local communities in natural resource management. Our projects include the development of conservation and research programs which contribute to sustainable wildlife utilization, wildlife conflict resolution, endangered species management, rescue of injured wildlife, ecosystem health, and training of government staff, communities and school children for natural resource management. The new Biodiversity Center in Kasane opened in 2010 and supports rescued wildlife as part of our educational program and is open to the public for visitation Monday-Saturday from 9-5. Come see Botswana’s natural wonders and enjoy our diverse collection of infamous snakes!
Through Dr. Alexander, President of CARACAL, Virginia Tech is an important technical partner in all of our work!
CARACAL is committed to the conservation of wildlife and improving the livelihoods of communities that must live with this resource in Botswana. Through a combination of research, outreach and education, we work closely with local communities and the Botswana government to secure a sustainable future.
Our Research programs take a systems biology approach integrating communities, wildlife, and ecosystem dynamics to solve emerging societal problems.
