The Elephant Outreach Program strives to address the ongoing struggle between humans and wildlife.
The project focuses on the communities youngest residents, as they are educated about the elephants importance in the ecosystem.
The Elephant Outreach Program at Sanctuary Stanley’s Camp and Sanctuary Baines’ Camp addresses the ongoing struggle of human-wildlife conflict by operating an educational program tailored to local Botswana youth.
In addition to Sanctuary guests, local school children from nearby villages interact with the elephants during two-day long excursions meant to introduce children to the animals in the same up-close and personal manner that our guests receive.
Most children know elephants only as a problem animal that tramples their fields. With a new understanding and appreciation for the elephants and their place in the local ecosystem, the children feel inspired to protect their future.
