Children in the Wilderness Joins Elephant and Rhino Conservation March in Gaborone
To ensure that our CITW children and future conservation leaders take part in promoting the greater protection of Africa’s elephant and rhino, nine CITW Eco-Club Members and three Eco-Mentors from Shashe, Tubu and Beetsha Primary Schools participated in the march on Saturday 7 October, with 2017 being the first year that Botswana participated in the Global March for Elephants and Rhinos (GMFER).
The march was well-attended, and Thea Khama (who sits on the CITW Botswana Board) was given the opportunity to address the participants about the walk. She encouraged participants to reflect back and start to appreciate and meditate on our natural resources. Thea encouraged the participants to be the voice of our animals, as they are not able to speak for themselves.
