Improving public preparedness through national public awareness campaigns

Preparing for and responding to floods, fires and other hazards is not just a matter for government but is a responsibility shared across all levels of the community. Developing resilient communities where people understand their risks, have taken steps to anticipate disasters and to protect themselves and work with their neighbours, local leaders and with the emergency services to prepare for and deal with disasters is the ultimate goal of current government policy.

The Ecology and Management of Kalahari lions in a Conflict Area in Central Botswana

African Lions (Panthera leo) are an integral aspect of natural ecosystems in Africa and provide income and ecosystem services to many human communities. I placed GPS position locating radio collars on 13 lions in 6 prides in the north of the Central Kalahari Game Reserve (CKGR), in central Botswana. I investigate the changes in prey density, and lion response through spatial dynamics, movement patterns. I also investigate the economics and extent of the lion livestock conflict in Central Botswana and explore potential management options in light of this new data.
