Michael Schwartz is an American consultant currently living in upstate New York. It wasn't until the age of twenty one when he got the opportunity to pack his bags and visit a South African game reserve. What started as a hobby soon developed into a passion for the African continent. With advanced degrees in Journalism and African studies, he has since had the good fortune of exploring the breadth of Southern Africa from its scenic shores to the rugged hinterland, as well as assisting in regional humanitarian endeavors. He plans to continue his journey discovering Africa while seeking out new ways of using his freelance photography and writing to promote environmental conservation and to raise cultural awareness.

Conservation, Culture, News, People

In 1997, the government of Botswana began evicting indigenous San and Bakgalagadi people from the Central Kalahari Game Reserve. Local and international advocacy groups have been fighting to enable the groups to return, arguing that the indigenous groups with traditional hunting and gathering lifestyles are far better able to preserve biodiversity than contemporary conservation approaches.
