The Bateleur – Quarter 1 (2018)

From the Editor

“As we welcome our learners and trainers for 2018, we’re mindful of the critical shift in the approach to conservation to mitigate loss of habitat, over population, over consumption, and the burgeoning wildlife trade. We have been hard at work to align our courses and programmes to these needs.

I particularly encourage you to look at our Learner Legacy Adopt a Student Programme, which provides bursaries and support across training programmes such as our Natural Resource Management Higher and Advanced Certificate, our Youth Access Conservation and Environmental Bridging Programme, our field ranger training at various levels as well as our Sustainable Use and Field Guiding Programmes. Students enrolled in these courses are the conservation leaders of the future. Please drop me a note to if you’d like to support any of the above programmes.

In addition, the various stories shared in this newsletter will give you a good idea of how we’ve kicked off the new year, and should you wish to know more about our individual programmes, training offerings and projects aimed at protecting our wildlife, we will happily send you more information if you email

To our current partners and donors; thank-you from all of us at the Southern African Wildlife College for your support. We look forward to sustaining our valued relationships and developing new ones in 2018.”
