4Cs Projects at Chitabe Lediba Camp

Introduction to eco-ethics and the relation to this camp Chitabe’s commitment to the 4Cs includes a variety of projects ranging from research and monitoring programmes to education and social upliftment projects. Below are a few that Chitabe currently supports both financially and logistically. .

Chitabe Staff - Children in the Wilderness

Each year, Chitabe and Chitabe Lediba bring the children of our staff to the camp for an annual Christmas Party. Two days of activities cover all aspects of conservation and game drives, as well as fun activities. This gives not only a sense of pride to our staff, but also to their children.

Botswana Predator Conservation Trust

This is the longest-running large predator conservation research programme in Botswana. Started by Dr JW McNutt in 1989 as a research project focused on Africa’s most endangered large carnivore, the African wild dog, it now has a record of life histories of thousands of wild dog over more than ten generations. The project expanded to become the Trust, which now serves as an umbrella organisation for all large predator conservation research (lion, leopard, cheetah, hyaena and wild dog). Chitabe supports the programme financially and the researchers logistically; Chitabe guides help in data collection.

Coaching for Conservation®

Chitabe contributes annually to the Coaching for Conservation (C4C) programme, an initiative of the Botswana Predator Conservation Trust that aims at inspiring children to care about themselves, others and the natural world around them. C4C’s signature Learning from Wildlife Model uses the power of and inherent value of sport, as well as bringing the animals we are trying to protect onto the sports field as virtual coaches and mentors to learn from. By linking conservation to core values through sport, children are able to personally connect with wildlife and wild spaces.

Maun Animal Welfare Society

Maun Animal Welfare Society (MAWS) is a non-profit organisation aiming to improve the lives of domestic animals by providing free or low-cost veterinary services and educational programmes in and around Maun, Botswana. MAWS’ vaccination campaign has helped reduce the spread of diseases such as rabies and canine distemper. Chitabe supports MAWS logistically and financially.

Aerial Survey

Since 2009, Chitabe and Chitabe Lediba have been involved, financially and logistically, in an annual Aerial Survey of the concession. Annual aerial surveys help to establish data on the wildlife populations in an area.
