During these troubled times we all have to remain at our best and do our fair share. Sacrifices are required by everyone, but together we will come out stronger and better than before. Stay home. Stay safe. Stay productive.

All staff are working remotely, so please contact us via email if you have any questions or need assistance.

Onward and upward.

This Fall semester, the department is piloting a new class concept for GRG 336 National Parks & Protected Areas. From Human wildlife conflicts to the role of woman in conservation, Dr. T Meyer features topics and problems from Botswana while students assess how these issues play out in the United States and other parts of the world. By the use of online lectures, self-recorded videos and life Q&A sessions, we try to bring the world to our campus. The series kicks of featuring artist Thabo Kgatlwane and a discussion on Society, Art and Conservation.
