WEI Wildlife Conservation Projects
The Botswana Predator Conservation Trust (BPCT) is an umbrella program for all large predator conservation research projects within its domain. It has a dual mission:
- To use rigorous scientific inquiry to acquire essential knowledge regarding the behavioral ecology and communication systems of the African wild dog, cheetah, leopard, lion and spotted hyena, and to apply this knowledge to promote solutions for the preservation of Africa's large predators and their habitats.
- To link conservation and environmental issues to the decision making in the ongoing development of rural Botswana.
