Improving conservation ethic in Botswana with candid photography

Using 221 camera traps in areas of differing human impact in Botswana, ecologist Lindsey Rich captured candid images of 44 different species of mammal over 5 months. Working with a local rural school, Rich enabled children to see and learn more about the wildlife local to their region. Her research will help inform local wildlife authorities on conservation issues and emphasizes the importance of protected areas and grasslands in southern Africa. Read my article over at The Canary “Intriguing candid images of Botswana’s wildlife help build conservation ethic” to see some of the candid images and for more information.
