CURRENT ISSUES
Okavango Wildlife Society The Okavango Wildlife Society (OWLS) founded in 1964, was originally concerned only with conservation of the Okavango Delta in the north of what is now the Republic of Botswana. Since then the Society's concern has widened to the entire Kalahari Desert including the Delta and the famous Chobe National Park.


Namibia Wants Okavango's Water!
A United States company has offered to build a factory in Namibia if it receives a contract to supply pipe for a controversial project designed to drain water from the Okavango River, which feeds the Okavango Delta in northern Botswana. The Namibian government, desperate to ease the pain of drought facing the country and Windhoek in particular, plans to take water from the river in a move that conservationists argue would put the delta at severe risk.


SCIENCE RESEARCH
