The Wild Bird Trust research camp will be set up at Mopiri Camp offering guests the opportunity to learn about their various projects and the research being carried out in the area.
The Wild Bird Trust will be launching all future Okavango Wetland Bird Surveys from Mopiri and the camp will be the home of the Okavango Wilderness Project, a long-term conservation project to preserve as much of the Kavango Basin as possible.

Cameras for Conservation was founded in 2011 by Steven Stockhall and Guy Symons. Their first goal was to create a national photography, art and short documentary maker competition to showcase and promote local talent in Botswana.
Their next goal is to use the imagery from the competition to promote conservation in local schools and to offer field trips to children. In a fast changing digital world cameras are fast being replaced with newer models. You can just imagine how many second hand/ old or disused cameras there are lying around the world. Cameras for Conservation believe that putting a camera in a child’s hand will enhance their experience on a field trip as well as create strong memories of their time in the bush. The talks and excursions also allow some pupils to consider a career in guiding, photography, writing or art.
