Dear Netters,

The Botswana Government is finallizing the last
veterenary cordon fences surrounding the
Okavango Delta. These fences will cut off most
of the remaining wildlife migration routes in the
area, affecting not only wildlife in Botswana,
but in neighbouring Namibia as well. 

The Okavango Wildlife Society has put out a
report on the WEB summarizing the background
of the fences, and the possible damage to
both local communities and wildlife.

Please read the report at:
