KRC is conducting actions to conserve the integrity of the Kalahari dryland ecosystem. The wildlife in the Kgalagadi is threatened by unsustainable encroachment of livestock, human wildlife conflict and illegal hunting for bush meat and body parts trade. The landscape hosts are many herbivores, including Eland, Springbok, Gemsbok, Hartebeest, Wildebeest, Duiker and Steenbok. There are good populations of the African lion, African wild dog, cheetah, leopard, Spotted and Brown Hyaena, and small carnivores such as Caracals, African wild cat and Black-footed cat. The raptor population there is diverse, including critically endangered species such as the white-backed and white-headed vultures, plus a variety of large and small eagles. The communities living in or near this landscape are poor and lack meaningful alternative livelihoods. With the expertise and experience in our team we works with the communities to come up with livelihoods alternatives as well as encourage land use practices that prevent further encroachment into the key areas for wildlife.
We aim to sustain this conservation approach and contributions to this call will go a long way in ensuring that the landscapes and its rich wildlife resources are protected. The support will enhance our wildlife research and conservation, but most importantly support the communities to reduce their dependence on the system, and temptations to engage in illegal activities.
