Molecular cloning and phylogenetic analysis of human immunodeficiency virus type 1 subtype C: a set of 23 full-length clones from Botswana. (1/208)

To better understand the virological aspect of the expanding AIDS epidemic in southern Africa, a set of 23 near-full-length clones of human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1) representing eight AIDS patients from Botswana were sequenced and analyzed phylogenetically. All study viruses from Botswana belonged to HIV-1 subtype C. The interpatient diversity of the clones from Botswana was higher than among full-length isolates of subtype B or among a set of full-length HIV-1 genomes of subtype C from India (mean value of 9. 1% versus 6.5 and 4.3%, respectively; P < 0.0001 for both comparisons). Similar results were observed in all genes across the entire viral genome. We suggest that the high level of HIV-1 diversity might be a typical feature of the subtype C epidemic in southern Africa. The reason or reasons for this diversity are unclear, but may include an altered replication efficiency of HIV-1 subtype C and/or the multiple introduction of different subtype C viruses.  (+info)

Elevated tumor necrosis factor-alpha activation of human immunodeficiency virus type 1 subtype C in Southern Africa is associated with an NF-kappaB enhancer gain-of-function. (2/208)

The human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1) epidemic within southern Africa is predominantly associated with the HIV-1C subtype. Functional analysis of the enhancer region within the long terminal repeat (LTR) indicates that HIV-1C isolates have >/=3 NF-kappaB binding sites, unlike other subtypes, which have only 1 or 2 sites. A correlation was shown between NF-kappaB enhancer configuration and responsiveness to the proinflammatory cytokine tumor necrosis factor (TNF)-alpha within the context of naturally occurring subtype LTRs, subtype-specific NF-kappaB enhancer regions cloned upstream of an isogenic HXB2 core promoter or a heterologous SV40 minimal promoter, and full-genome subtype clones. In all cases, TNF-alpha activation was correlated with the subtype configuration of the NF-kappaB enhancer. Whether the naturally occurring gain-of-function in the NF-kappaB enhancer of HIV-1C observed in this study can provide a selective advantage for the virus in vivo remains to be determined and warrants further study.  (+info)

Morbidity and health care utilisation among elderly people in Mmankgodi village, Botswana. (3/208)

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the health status among the elderly in a village in Botswana and their pattern of health care utilisation. DESIGN: A descriptive study where all persons 60 years and older were invited to participate, including a medical examination, laboratory testing and a questionnaire aiming at gathering sociodemographic data. SETTING: Mmankgodi village of Botswana. SUBJECTS: 419 persons were identified as elderly in the village, out of which 337 were included. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: The general medical examination also included eye status, vision and hearing tests, nutritional status, blood pressure and registering of physical disabilities. Laboratory tests included haemoglobin, blood glucose, HIV antibodies and serum lipids. The questionnaire contained questions regarding family and civil status, self assessed general health, health problems experienced during the previous month, and health care utilisation. Questions also pertained to smoking, taking snuff, and alcohol consumption. RESULTS: A majority (75%) of the elderly experienced good or only somewhat reduced health, while one quarter suffered more serious health problems. The most frequent health problems were related to the musculoskeletal system. Eye diseases, including cataract and blindness, were also common. The concentration of serum lipids is lower than the one found in the elderly population of Norway. Nutritional status indicated a relatively high prevalence (7%) of malnutrition. The majority of men were still married (87%), while most women were widowed (71%). Women reported more health problems than men, and they also reported more worries regarding their own life situation. There is a tendency for the elderly to seek assistance from the established clinics and other health facilities for their health problems. Worries are either kept to themselves or advice is sought from relatives. Traditional healers were not often consulted for health problems or worries. CONCLUSIONS: Major health problems were identified among the elderly in this geographical area of Botswana. There is presently no health programme in Botswana aimed at the elderly. Some of the diseases and conditions found in this study could easily be identified and treated in the present health system through a health care programme.  (+info)

Microscopic identification of asbestos fibres associated with African clay crafts manufacture. (4/208)

The use of asbestos in manufacturing is a world-wide phenomenon, not just confined to the developed world. The activity described below shows that there are similar problems in the third world which need to be tackled. A sample of white fibrous material used in pot making by women in a village of Botswana was provided for analysis. The identification of fibres was carried out using established analytical and vibrational microspectroscopic methods. The occupational hygiene implications and the measures which may need to be taken in order to improve the safety of the pot making process are discussed in this article.  (+info)

Characterization of strains of Mycoplasma mycoides subsp. mycoides small colony type isolated from recent outbreaks of contagious bovine pleuropneumonia in Botswana and Tanzania: evidence for a new biotype. (5/208)

Four strains of Mycoplasma mycoides subsp. mycoides small colony type (MmmSC) isolated from recent outbreaks of contagious bovine pleuropneumonia (CBPP) in Africa have been investigated. One Botswanan strain, M375, displayed numerous and significant phenotypic differences from both contemporary field isolates and older field and vaccine strains (African, Australian, and European strains dating back to 1936). Differences include altered morphology, reduced capsular polysaccharide production, high sensitivity to MmmSC rabbit hyperimmune antisera in vitro, and unique polymorphisms following immunoblotting. While insertion sequence analysis using IS1634 clearly indicates a close evolutionary relationship to west African strains, hybridization with IS1296 shows the absence of a band present in all other strains of MmmSC examined. The data suggest that a deletion has occurred in strain M375, which may explain its altered phenotype, including poor growth in vitro and a relative inability to cause septicemia in mice. These characteristics are also exhibited by Mycoplasma capricolum subsp. capripneumoniae (causal agent of contagious caprine pleuropneumonia [CCPP]), against which M375 antiserum exhibited some activity in vitro (unique among the various MmmSC antisera tested). These findings may have evolutionary implications, since CCPP is believed to be lung specific and without a septicemic phase (unlike CBPP). Since M375 was isolated from a clinical case of CBPP, this novel biotype may be fairly widespread but not normally isolated due to difficulty of culture and/or a potentially altered disease syndrome. Bovine convalescent antisera (obtained from contemporary naturally infected cattle in Botswana) were active against strain M375 in an in vitro growth inhibition test but not against any other strains of MmmSC tested. There exists the possibility therefore, that strain M375 may possess a set of protective antigens different from those of other strains of MmmSC (including vaccine strains). These findings have implications for the control of the current CBPP epidemic in Africa.  (+info)

Molecular cloning and biological characterization of full-length HIV-1 subtype C from Botswana. (6/208)

Human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1) subtype C is now responsible for more than half of all HIV-1 infections in the global epidemic and for the high levels of HIV-1 prevalence in southern Africa. To facilitate studies of the biological nature and the underlying molecular determinants of this virus, we constructed eight full-length proviral clones from two asymptomatic and three AIDS patients infected with HIV-1 subtype C from Botswana. Analysis of viral lysates showed that Gag, Pol, and Env structural proteins were present in the virions. In four clones, the analysis suggested inefficient envelope glycoprotein processing. Nucleotide sequence analysis of the eight clones did not reveal frameshifts, deletions, premature truncations, or translational stop codons in any structural, regulatory, or accessory genes. None of the subtype C clones were replication competent in donor peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs), macrophages, Jurkat(tat) cells, or U87. CD4.CCR5 cells. However, infection by two clones could be rescued by complementation with a functional subtype C envelope clone, resulting in a productive infection of PBMCs, macrophages, and U87. CD4.CCR5 cells.  (+info)

Molecular and conventional epidemiology of Mycobacterium tuberculosis in Botswana: a population-based prospective study of 301 pulmonary tuberculosis patients. (7/208)

Little is known about patterns of tuberculosis (TB) transmission among populations in developing countries with high rates of TB and human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection. To examine patterns of TB transmission in such a setting, we performed a population-based DNA fingerprinting study among TB patients in Botswana. Between January 1997 and July 1998, TB patients from four communities in Botswana were interviewed and offered HIV testing. Their Mycobacterium tuberculosis isolates underwent DNA fingerprinting using IS6110 restriction fragment length polymorphism, and those with matching fingerprints were reinterviewed. DNA fingerprints with >5 bands were considered clustered if they were either identical or differed by at most one band, while DNA fingerprints with < or =5 bands were considered clustered only if they were identical. TB isolates of 125 (42%) of the 301 patients with completed interviews and DNA fingerprints fell into 20 different clusters of 2 to 16 patients. HIV status was not associated with clustering. Prior imprisonment was the only statistically significant risk factor for clustering (risk ratio, 1.5; 95% confidence interval, 1.1 to 2.0). In three communities where the majority of eligible patients were enrolled, 26 (11%) of 243 patients overall and 26 (25%) of 104 clustered patients shared both a DNA fingerprint and strong antecedent epidemiologic link. Most of the increasing TB burden in Botswana may be attributable to reactivation of latent infection, but steps should be taken to control ongoing transmission in congregate settings. DNA fingerprinting helps determine loci of TB transmission in the community.  (+info)

Shigella and Salmonella strains isolated from children under 5 years in Gaborone, Botswana, and their antibiotic susceptibility patterns. (8/208)

We isolated Shigella from 43/221 (21%) and Salmonella 8/221 (3%) rectal swabs from children under 5 years with diarrhoea, and found Shigella in two of 100 specimens from children without diarrhoea. Sh. boydii (13%) was the most prevalent Shigella species followed by Sh. flexneri (6%) and Sh. sonnei (2%). The prevalence of various types of Sh. boydii was type 7, 5%; type 9, 3%; type 12 and 16, 2%; and type 18, 1%. Other Shigella serotypes encountered were Sh. flexneri type 6 (4%), type 4 (2%), with Sh. sonnei phase II isolated from 2% of the specimens. The Salmonella species were S. typhimurium and S. paratyphi. The high rate of isolation of Shigella species from children with diarrhoea is indicative of a definite role of this enteropathogen in causing endemic diarrhoea in Gaborone, Botswana. Antibiograms of the predominant isolates showed that most Shigella species were resistant to ampicillin but susceptible to chloramphenicol, and with the exception of Sh. flexneri type 6, also susceptible to gentamicin. The Salmonella species were susceptible to chloramphenicol, collistin-sulphate, gentamicin, cotrimoxazole, and ampicillin.  (+info)

Background: Novel HIV prevention approaches are urgently needed in Botswana and elsewhere in sub-Saharan Africa. Although adult male circumcision (MC) has been shown to reduce the heterosexual acquisition of HIV by men by about 60%, MC in infancy is optimal for its relative ease, lower cost and low rate of complications. We have conducted focus groups and semi-structured interviews that suggest neonatal MC (, 28 days of life) would be an acceptable public HIV prevention strategy in Botswana. The government of Botswana is committed to scaling up MC services in the immediate future and they plan to include neonates. Understanding decision-making around infant MC will be essential to maximize the effectiveness of this HIV prevention strategy.. Specific Aims: The investigators propose to: 1) determine the acceptability and actual uptake of neonatal MC in southeastern Botswana and identify barriers to uptake; 2) ascertain the feasibility and safety of neonatal MC in Botswana; 3) Estimate what, if ...

Gaborone, Botswana, 16 May 2012 Household survey data shows that stunting among under-five year-olds is twice as high among children in the poorest households than those in the richest. Stunting is a strong indicator of inadequate child growth and development, reflecting chronic lack of nutrition, care and general health. National household surveys are routinely conducted by Central Statistics Office Botswana and they track progress against basic nutrition indicators. In recent years, these have included the Multiple Indicator Cluster/ Botswana Family Health Survey (BFHS) series, generating data for 2000 and 2007 (CSO, 2001 and 2009). While the survey reports have valuable national data on child nutrition indicators, they rarely disaggregate indicators to facilitate a full appreciation of the distribution of child nutrition indicators across various socio-demographic factors and geographic areas. In order to make greater use of the survey data, the Government of Botswana with support from ...

Botswana has maintained one of the worlds highest growth rates since independence in 1966. Through fiscal discipline and sound management, Botswana has transformed itself from one of the poorest countries in the world to a middle-income country with a per capita GDP of $7,800 in 2001. Two major investment services rank Botswana as the best credit risk in Africa. Diamond mining has fueled much of expansion and currently accounts for more than one-third of GDP and for four-fifths of export earnings. Tourism, subsistence farming, and cattle raising are other key sectors. On the downside, the government must deal with high rates of unemployment and poverty. Unemployment officially is 21%, but unofficial estimates place it closer to 40%. HIV/AIDS infection rates are the highest in the world and threaten Botswanas impressive economic gains ...

Tlokweng is a village located directly adjacent to the capital of Botswana, Gaborone, in the South-East District. It can be considered part of the conurbation of Gaborone. Tlokweng stands on the other side of the river, and is on the road to the border with South Africa, the border post being just 15 km to the east. The population was 35,982 at the 2011 census. It is now part of Gaborone agglomeration, home to 421,907 inhabitants at the 2011 census. The tribe originating from Tlokweng is referred to as Batlokwa. Many people from across Botswana have come to seek permanent and sometimes temporary settlement in Tlokweng because of its proximity to the capital city where most jobs are. Tlokweng is associated with a main character in The No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency series of novels by Alexander McCall Smith. The protagonist, Mma Precious Ramotswe, marries Mr. J.L.B.

The beef industry in southern Africa has been a stalwart of economic development, but new conditions of trade, market access and disease dynamics, particularly of foot-and-mouth disease (FMD), mean a major rethink is required. Our research addresses key policy options to allow southern Africa to benefit from the global livestock revolution. It explores what options exist for trade, given changes in demand patterns, global competition and market access conditions, and asks who are the winners and losers of different scenarios for the future.. Botswana has always placed considerable emphasis on cattle production. Livestock production is the major agricultural activity in Botswana, which is one of the few countries in the SADC region to achieve the standards of production and health required to market beef to the EU.. One of Botswanas most important achievements has been the successful control of foot-and-mouth disease (FMD), relying on cordon fences to separate cattle from the countrys rich ...
Data from the 2008 Botswana AIDS Impact Survey III (2008 BAIS III) were used to explore the determinants of HIV infection risk in Botswana. It was found that place of residence, age, gender, education, marital status, type of relationship with a sexual partner, male circumcision, religion and sexual behaviour might be significant determinants of HIV infection risk in Botswana. Education seems to be a major determinant. The policy implication is that education should be emphasized in order to fight the HIV/AIDS epidemic. Rural development is also essential.. ...
Botswana has a high burden of cervical cancer due to a limited screening program and high HIV prevalence. About 60% of the cervical cancer patients are HIV positive; most present with advanced cervical disease. Through initiatives by the Botswana Ministry of Health and various strategic partnerships, strides have been made in treatment of pre-invasive and invasive cancer. The See and Treat program for cervical cancer is expanding throughout the country. Starting in 2015, school-going girls will be vaccinated against HPV. In regards to treatment of invasive cancer, a multidisciplinary clinic has been initiated at the main oncology hospital to streamline care. However, challenges remain such as delays in treatment, lack of trained human personnel, limited follow-up care, and little patient education. Despite improvements in the care of pre-invasive and invasive cervical cancer patients, for declines in cervical cancer-related morbidity and mortality to be achieved, Botswana needs to continue to invest in
Hepatitis B virus (HBV) is a major global health problem especially in sub-Saharan Africa and in East Asia. Ten hepatitis B virus genotypes have been described that differ by geographic distribution, disease progression, and response to treatment. Escape mutations within the surface open reading frame (ORF) affect HBV antigenicity leading to failures in diagnosis, vaccine and hepatitis B immunoglobulin therapy. However, the molecular characteristics of HBV in Botswana, a highly endemic country, are unknown. We describe the molecular characteristics of HBV and prevalence of escape mutants among HIV/HBV coinfected individuals Botswana. DNA was extracted from archived plasma samples from 81 HIV/HBV co-infected participants from various clinical studies at the Botswana Harvard AIDS Institute Partnership. A 415 base pair (bp) fragment of the polymerase gene was amplified by semi-nested PCR. In a subset of samples, a 2100 bp fragment was amplified. The PCR product was genotyped using Big Dye sequencing

On Tuesday 11 June 2019, civil rights activists and the LGBTIQ community in Botswana celebrated an essential step towards improved gay rights as Botswanas High Court ruled against criminalising same-sex relations (Repeal164). Not only is this a crucial milestone in the fight for equal rights, it also paves a path for new opportunities in the HIV/AIDS response. This decision helps reduce stigma against the gay community and makes AIDS prevention and treatment accessible within this key population. LEGABIDO and partners LEGABIBO, partner of COC and MPact in Bridging the Gaps, was a key influencer in this Courts proceedings. The organisation, founded in 1998 with the purpose to fight for the rights and well-being of the LGBTIQ community, presented their expert evidence and educated the Court on the negative impacts of institutionalised violations of human rights against the gay community. It argued that the values of Botswanas society were no longer represented in the governments outdated ...
The Botswana governments National Conservation Strategy and Tourism Policy was created to promote tourism while protecting wildlife areas. Citizens of the United States, South Africa, British Commonwealth countries, and most Western European countries do not need visas for stays of less than 91 days.

Without saying it in many words Tshekedi Khama feels he would run Air Botswana better than those currently assigned the role at ministerial level. In fact, if he had his way he would have long had the national airline transferred to his ministry. As he confirmed in an interview this week, he was not happy that the current Transport and Communications minister Kitso Mokaila has taken the route to privatise Air Botswana.

Report written by Charley Hesse.. This trip was the 4th annual Audubon Shop Namibia/Botswana custom tour. The tried and tested itinerary remained unchanged from previous years although we did get to stay at some great new accommodations for the first time. From Windhoek we dropped off the escarpment and crossed the Namib Desert, experiencing an ever-changing landscape and finding the rare Hartmanns Mountain Zebra. In the Walvis Bay area we found the Namibian endemic Dune Lark and saw extraordinary numbers of both flamingos on the coast. The famous inselberg of Spitzkoppe produced the rare Herero Chat against a stunning backdrop and clients were charmed by the incredible location of the Erongo Wilderness Lodge with all its interesting specialties, including the charismatic Rockrunner. Etosha National Park never disappoints and this year we had great action with many lions and elephants around waterholes during the day, and with the drought, especially large numbers of Black Rhinos at night.

ABSTRACT. The study reports supercritical fluid extraction (SFE) of pesticides in sediment samples from the Okavango Delta, the headwaters of which originate from Angola and traverse through Namibia into Botswana. An acetone modifier and fractional extraction by pressure ramping gave recoveries ranging from 55 to 86% for the 15 pesticides studied. Hexachlorobenzene (HCB), aldrin and 4, 4-dichlorodiphenyltrichloroethane (4, 4-DDT) were identified at concentration ranges of 1.1 to 30.3, 0.5 to 15.2 and 1.4 to 55.4 µg/g, respectively by gas chromatography with electron capture detection (GC-ECD) and were unequivocally confirmed by gas chromatography time-of-flight mass spectrometry (GC-ToF-MS). The study indicated an increase of pesticide concentrations in the direction of water flow from the Panhandle (point of entry) to the lower delta. The results show that there are ramifications associated with activities either upstream or downstream; hence close monitoring is required for the long-term ...
The recent increase in the creation of trans-boundary protected areas and wildlife corridors between them lend importance to information on pathogen prevalence and transmission among wildlife species that will become connected. One such initiative is the Kavango Zambezi Transfrontier Conservation Area (KAZA/TFCA) of which Botswanas Okavango Delta constitute a major contribution in terms of wildlife and ecosystems. Between 2008 and 2011, we collected serum samples from 14 lions (Panthera leo), four leopards (P. pardus), 19 spotted hyenas (Crocuta crocuta), and six cheetahs (Acinonyx jubatus) in the Okavango. Samples were tested for antibodies against: canine distemper virus (CDV), feline panleukopenia virus, enteric coronavirus, feline calicivirus, feline herpesvirus (FHV-1), and feline immunodeficiency virus (FIV). Evidence of exposure to all of these pathogens was found to varying degrees in at least one of the species sampled. High seroprevalence (, 90%) was only found for FHV-1 and FIV in ...

I his is truly a matter of public interest in that so many Zimbabweans and the world at large know that returning these people to the Zimbabwe government is like sending them to hell. The present Zimbabwe government under Emerson Mnangagwa is worse than that of predecessor the Zanu government under the now late dictator Robert Mugabe. We really, wonder where UNHCR Botswana gets its information if they do not see that sending these refugees to Zimbabwe is a mere violation of the Geneva Convention of 19S1. We are aware that in deciding refugee status each case is looked at on its own merit. However, this case is unique in that these refugees comprise of former army personnel who deserted the Zimbabwean Army who on return will be Court Marshalled. They deserted because they did not want to carry out illegal orders of beating up, torturing, and sometimes even shooting innocent civilians. They refused such orders and so fled for their lives after they had been put on the wanted list by the human ...

The Kalahari Copper Belt (KCB) is a 1,000 kilometer long NE-SW trending belt of sediment-hosted, stratiform Cu-Ag deposits hosted in Meso- and Neoproterozoic rocks. The KCB extends from northern Botswana into Namibia along the NW edge of the Kalahari Craton, and consists of folded and greenschist metamorphosed Ghanzi (Botswana) and Tsumis (Namibia) Group metasedimentary rocks.. The KCBs Cu-Ag deposits occur in chemically reduced shales and siltstones that overlie oxidized sandstones. This regional interface, which is both a permeability barrier and redox boundary, played a critical role in the formation of the Cu-Ag deposits, and represents a geologic setting similar to that of the Central African Copper Belt and Kupferschiefer in Poland.. Cupric has an extensive package of licenses with in-place mining infrastructure, JORC compliant resources and numerous additional high-grade Cu-Ag exploration targets in the KCB of Botswana. Since the acquisition of Khoemacau in 2013, Cupric has drilled out ...
Background: International donors support the partnership between the Government of Botswana and two international organisations: U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and Africa Comprehensive HIV/AIDS Partnership to implement Voluntary Medical Male Circumcision with the target of circumcising 80 % of HIV negative men in 5 years. Botswana Government had started integration of the program into its health system when international partners brought in the Models for Optimizing Volume and Efficiency to strengthen delivery of the service and push the target. The objective of this paper is to use a systems model to establish how the functioning of the partnership on Safe Male Circumcision in Botswana contributed to the outcome.. Methods: Data were collected using observations, focus group discussions and interviews. Thirty participants representing all three partners were observed in a 3-day meeting; followed by three rounds of in-depth interviews with five selected leading officers over 2 ...
They tell me that the United Kingdom has banned me from entering the country and that I cant even so much as have a connecting flight in London, Anderson explains in the video. So not only am I banned from the UK, but I cant even go to the London airport. He states that he had to re-route his entire journey to get to Botswana where he hopes to spread his message of hate. Im still excited about what were doing in Botswana, he said. Its too bad that South Africa fell through because, you know, they banned me personally, they banned the soul winning event. He then slammed the country by saying, I wasnt really that excited about visiting their so-called beautiful country which is the rape capital of the world. He states its one of the most dangerous and wicked places in the entire world before saying all he was trying to do was bring the gospel to the lost. He finished his video by telling Christians of South Africa to save themselves and praised Botswana for being more receptive ...

Devils Claw is a geophyte, i.e. an herbaceous perennial that stores water and nutrients in underground tubers in order to survive harsh climatic conditions. There are two species of Devilss Claw Harpagophytum procumbens and Harpagophytum zeyheri - which thrive in the deep sandy soils of the Kalahari where there is low rainfall (less than 500mm per year). H. procumbens is found in Namibia, Botswana and South Africa, while H. zeyheri occurs in these countries as well as in Angola, Zambia, Zimbabwe and Mozambique.. Both species grow a primary underground tuber from which are formed a number of fleshy secondary tubers that can reach up to 40cm in length. Above ground, the stems emerge after the first rains and can reach up to 2m in length. They die back in winter or during droughts. The leaves are blue-green and the flowers, which open for only one day and are pollinated by bees, are a deep mauve-pink with a yellow and white throat. Devils Claw belongs to the Pedaliaceae botanical family and is ...

In the past, Khama said, the wrangling was along the northern border of the Zambezi region where there are a lot of wetlands.. But it was never really clear to either party where the border of the flat plains of the river is. So thats why this reaffirmation hopes to remove any doubt and mark the border so that people who commonly operate in those areas -be it members of the security forces or the general population - will know where the border lies. So that is now something of the past and I think its a positive step in the right direction, Khama said.. Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of International Relations and Cooperation, Selma Ashipala-Musavyi, on Tuesday said the significance of the treaty is that boundaries are now clearly marked to avoid any contravention.. The issue of the shooting at the border has been resolved. The two ministers of international relations have engaged and that is why you have not heard of any incident. But if everyone knows that this is where the border ...

Today it is a dry and dusty land with scattered salt pans, and it is hard to believe that modern humans lived and thrived in wetlands here for 70,000 years before our ancestors began to explore the rest of Africa, and ultimately the world.. We pinpointed this region by studying mitochondrial DNA, known as the mitogenome. Unlike nuclear DNA, which is passed on by both mother and father, mitochondrial DNA is passed on only by the mother, which means it is not jumbled up in each generation.. If we think of all modern humans as occupying a particular place on a huge family tree, logically we should find the most diverse mitogenomes at the very base of the tree, because it is the ultimate source of all the various branches.. We already know that genetic data points to southern Africa as the cradle of humanity (unlike fossil evidence, most of which has been found in East Africa). But we wanted to refine our search still further, to pinpoint the exact location where humans first evolved.. To do this, ...
Migrations of most animal taxa are declining as a result of anthropogenic pressures and land-use transformation. Here, we document and characterize a previously unknown multi-country migration of Burchells zebra Equus quagga that is the longest of all recorded large mammal migrations in Africa. Our data from eight adult female zebras collared on the border of Namibia and Botswana show that in December 2012 all individuals crossed the Chobe River and moved due south to Nxai Pan National Park in Botswana, where they spent a mean duration of 10 weeks before returning, less directly, to their dry season floodplain habitat. The same southward movements were also observed in December 2013. Nxai Pan appeared to have similar environmental conditions to several possible alternative wet season destinations that were closer to the dry season habitat on the Chobe River, and water availability, but not habitat or vegetation biomass, was associated with higher-use areas along the migratory pathway. These ...
How can documentary films, such as Soul of the Elephant, be used as instruments of change? This was the topic of discussion that filmmakers, Derek and Beverly Joubert, addressed during their discussion panel at the Sundance Film Festival held in January. As honorary Botswana citizens and National Geographic Explorers-in-residence, they have spent decades using the medium of filmmaking and photography as a podium to speak about conservation. With the escalating level of emergency, they have focused on Africas elephants and rhinos (every 9 hours a rhino is killed in South Africa and 45 elephants across Africa Source: Great Plains Foundation). Their safari company, Great Plains Conservation, in partnership with fellow safari company &Beyond and Africa Foundation, have translocated nearly 100 rhinos through Rhinos Without Borders into the safekeeping of Botswana from South Africa where tumultuous poaching and corruption have resulted in a massacre of rhinos in recent years. All through the month of ...

On February 5th, human rights activists will hold a demonstration at the New York City Hilton Hotel where the 4th Annual Rapaport International Diamond Conference will take place. The diamond is on the defensive.. Organizers of the planned protest reject the diamond industrys recent publicity campaign promoting the extraction and sale of non-conflict diamonds as beneficial to indigenous and African communities.. Critics of the industry point to Botswana, the largest supplier of uncut diamonds in the world, where a fourth of the population lives on less than a dollar a day. A third of the people of are undernourished and the life expectancy is 36 years. Botswana has the second largest per capita AIDS rate on the planet, with nearly a quarter of the people infected.
