Botswana Predator Conservation Trust

The Botswana Predator Conservation Trust (BPCT) is one of the longest running conservation research projects in Africa. Founded as the Botswana Wild Dog Research Project in 1989, today it covers all the large carnivore species in Botswana. The goal of the BPCT is to preserve Africa's large predators - African wild dog, cheetah, leopard, lion and spotted hyena - and their habitats, using scientific inquiry to better understand the behavior and communication systems of these animals. They also aim to link conservation and environmental issues to decision-making in the ongoing development of rural Botswana.
