  Botswana Wild Bird Trust have partnered with OKACOM, National Geographic Society, De Beers Group, and others in order to fund and continue this work. And through the Okavango Eternal partnership with De Beers, we have engaged in compelling storytelling, across numerous platforms, to raise awareness of the Delta and its benefits. That includes a Setswana- language film on the Nkashi Classic - a race and cultural celebration of the mokoro - an annual race held in Botswana.
