Wildlife Conservation in Northern Botswana

The Botswana Predator Conservation Trust (BPCT) conducts wildlife behavior and communication research on free-ranging wildlife in Northern Botswana. 

This project, called the BioBoundary Project, is the only such research project in the world focusing on deciphering the chemistry of natural scent mark signals - the 'language'- of free ranging populations of large predators, and using these signals, to influence their movement and behavior to prevent human-wildlife conflict, and ultimately, to promote coexistence between people and predators. Threatened focal species include lions, leopards and the African wild dog. 

Through collaborative partnerships, we support innovative projects that protect vulnerable wildlife from extinction, while restoring balance to threatened ecosystems and communities. Our work is divided into six main program areas – Wildlands Conservation, Oceans Conservation, Climate Change, Indigenous Rights, Transforming California, and Innovative Solutions.
