The Kalahari Conservation Society is Botswana’s longest-serving environmental non-governmental organisation, dedicated to the conservation of Botswana’s natural resources and biodiversity.
WHO WE ARE
Kalahari Conservation Society (KCS) is the longest serving environmental Non-Governmental Organisation (NGO) in Botswana dedicated to protecting Botswana’s unique biodiversity and community wellbeing. We pride ourselves with a legacy of investment in nature conservation which embraces environmental education, advocacy on the protection of wildlife and demonstration of the value of wildlife and natural resources to local communities who reside close to wildlife.
KCS is a membership-based organisation, funded by annual membership as well as domestic, regional and international grant support and donations. It is KCS’ teamwork and passion that influences and drives the Society’s programmes and activities. Over the years, KCS has grown in leaps and bounds to be one of the most reputable NGOs in the country, region and the world.
