A CONSERVATION STORY

COMMUNITY & CULTURE

As well as being an incredible community of flora and fauna, Tswalu is also an extended human family of people from the Kalahari and beyond. We find strength in our diversity, and because we all share the same vision for the future of Tswalu, we can combine our energies and passion to make Tswalu’s vision a reality.

The Tswalu community consists of our staff members and their families, researchers, visiting doctors that support the healthcare centre, visiting artists in residence, and each of our guests, alongside a wider community of neighbours, conservationists and everyone who cares about the restoration of the Kalahari.

CULTURE

While humans always impact on the environment, understanding the extent of this impact, and identifying whether the impact is significant or not, is important. Species react differently to environmental impacts, some species tolerating high levels of interference, others showing marked reaction to very slight changes in their environment.
