Protection of their habitat is where KAZA plays its role.
Elephants are born travellers walking vast distance in large herds with the matriarch leading the way.

The programme “Elephants Without Borders” has discovered ancient pathways and corridors leading from Botswana into Angola.

 

Lion
Black rhino
White rhino

Vultures
Globally there are 23 species of vultures of which 16 are found in Africa. All species are endangered.

 
Poaching for traditional medicinal purposes as well as meat is the major threat.
Have you ever seen these magnificent birds of prey effortlessly gliding on the thermals – circling round and round – never hitting one another.
Their job is to find and clean up after a kill and this is done with great enthusiasm and a lot of excitement. 
There are vulture conservation projects and like every species that is endangered they need support (either volunteering for fitting gps or wing tagging; or you can also take part in vulture counts.
