Participants were Caracal, Wild for Life Non-Governmental Organizations and representatives from government departments. In addition, Radio Botswana, Botswana Television, Sunday Standard media, Botswana Police Service and Medical Rescue commemorated the event.

Lead Poisoning Workshop

- September 2023

More efforts are currently in place not to only address poisoning but also other known threats. BirdLife Botswana is also currently working on addressing lead poisoning on vultures with a National Lead Working Group already initiated in September 2023 and a draft National Lead Poisoning Action Plan developed to strategize on a multi-sectoral approach to deal with lead exposure on the environment. Lead poisoning is an emerging threat to vultures that is currently less documented hence an urgent need to address.
