The crocodile research group worked in Botswana from 2002-2006. A crocodile management plan was handed to the Dept of Wildlife and National Parks in Botswana and it has since been included in the draft of the ODMP (Okavango Delta Management Plan). This is great news. Two of the group members (Vince Shacks and Sven Bourquin) are currently residing in Maun, Botswana and will be assisiting with the implementation of the management plan. The research group are currently carrying out a similar project in the Zambezi Valley in Zambia. For further details log onto
