We had 3 more guest lecture yesterday. Sven Borquin, a local researcher, presented his Ph.D. research on crocodile conservation, behavior, and diet. Andrew Stein, an American researcher and professor at Landmark College, presented his recent project on how to involve local communities in order to lessen lion-livestock conflicts using new advanced GPS technologies. Tshepiso Rankho, a local tourism operator, described how tourism benefits Botswana and how eco-tourism informs tourists about local cultures.
