TshepoDungiKgokilwe of the Botswana Predator Conservation Program (BPCP) produces a weblog, Okavango Carnivore Conservation, that describes the programme's activities in radio-tracking and following large carnivores in the Okavango area.

The programme aims to use scientific inquiry to acquire essential knowledge about the behavioral ecology and communication systems of the African wild dog, cheetah, leopard, lion, and spotted hyena, and to apply this knowledge to promote solutions for the preservation of Africa's large predators and their habitats as well as to link conservation and environmental issues to decision making in the ongoing development of rural Botswana. In HOORC's LIbrary, you can find People and predators : from conflict to coexistence.
