Khama appointed founding patron of Tuli Conservation Trust

Tuli Conservation Trust has announced the appointment of Former President of Botswana, His Excellency Lieutenant General Dr. Seretse Khama Ian Khama, as its founding patron.

Khama played a visionary role in establishing Botswana’s world-renowned conservation ethos and continues to provide strong leadership and commitment by working with regional and international conservation organisations.

“The Tuli region is close to my heart and so I am delighted to become founding patron of the Tuli Conservation Trust,” said Khama. “I applaud the Trust’s efforts to seek sustainable solutions to preserving our natural heritage alongside a genuine commitment to empowering our local communities.”

Seretse Khama Ian Khama and Stephen Lansdown CBE are pictured above, seated next to and standing immediately behind HRH Duke of Cambridge respectively, at the Conservation Thought Leadership Gathering at Buckingham Palace on 9th November 2018.

Stephen Lansdown CBE, Trustee, commented: “His Excellency is very well respected both in Botswana and internationally for his leadership and commitment to conservation. We are honoured that he has agreed to be the Founding Patron of the Tuli Conservation Trust and look forward to working with him and receiving his guidance as we seek to ensure that humans and wildlife co-exist harmoniously in the area.”

Tuli Conservation Trust is a charitable organisation in Botswana established to protect and enhance the Northern Tuli Game Reserve by finding sustainable solutions to enable human/wildlife coexistence.

The Northern Tuli Game Reserve is a precious wilderness asset in a strategic location where Botswana meets its neighbours South Africa and Zimbabwe at the confluence of two great African rivers, the Limpopo and the Shashe. The Reserve forms the cornerstone of the 5,909 square kilometre Greater Mapungubwe Transfrontier Conservation Area, one of a series of Peace Parks established in Southern Africa to jointly manage natural and cultural resources across international boundaries.
