Wildlife Conservation in Botswana's Okavango Delta: ABCG Brown Bag

by Portal Web Editor last modified May 02, 2013 10:37 PM ABCG
Rich in biodiversity and a world class destination for ecotourists, Botswana is often hailed as a conservation success story. But recent research has indicated that large mammal populations are declining, and growth in the agriculture industry threatens the long-term persistence of wildlife in community-held areas. In this presentation, Ms. Stoner will explain why Botswana's Okavango Delta is a unique and important place for wildlife conservation, and why international attention plays an important role in its continued protection. Using research performed in 1995 and 2012, she will characterize both the challenges and opportunities for conservationists in the future, with a particular focus on pastoral communities.

About Kelly Stoner

Kelly J. Stoner is currently a master's student at the Yale School of Forestry & Environmental Studies, where she studies wildlife conservation in sub-Saharan Africa. With a diverse portfolio of experiences, Ms. Stoner utilizes her knowledge of ecology and skills in communication and outreach to integrate the biological needs of carnivores and sociopolitical concerns of communities, governments, nonprofits, and other interested parties. Previously, Ms. Stoner worked to reduce cheetah-pastoralist conflict in Namibia, assisted in managing field programs for the Jane Goodall Institute, and acted as a program coordinator at Conservation International. Most recently Ms. Stoner studied attitudes toward carnivores in Botswana as a Fulbright Fellow; the results of her research are the subject of this presentation.
