About this book

Botswana sits in the cradle of southern Africa, with a unique mixture of ecology, politics, economy and tradition, making it a fascinating place to explore the dynamics of contemporary conservation. Take a journey under the wide skies of the Kalahari to discover biological wonders like the mopane tree and the gemsbok, learn about Botswana's role in the international peace parks development, and find out why you should always stay downwind of Trouble (the black rhino). Starting with close observation of the region's ecology and biology, Hartnett unpacks the stories and challenges of a country which, in many ways, is a model of conservation for the African continent.
