Student Presentations (Melissa and Jake)

While on safari in Moremi Game Reserve we had two student presentations from Melissa and Jake. Melissa presented on the diversity of species within the Okavango Delta. The region hosts a wide variety of flora and fauna, with 1300 plants, 71 fish species, 33 amphibians, 64 reptiles, 444 birds, and 122 mammals.

Jake presented on local attitudes towards three Community-based Natural Resource Management (CBNRM) projects within the Okavango Delta. These projects have been embraced by local communities, which help financially support villages and in turn have modernized these region's once subsistence lifestyles.
