Project Plan[edit]


Tell us how you'll carry out your project. Be sure to answer the following questions:
1. How many walks/tours will you organize and how many people on each walk?

  • We are going to carry out three (3) tours/walks

2. What kind of content will the walks focus on? Why is this topic a priority?

  • We are going to focus on talking pictures of Wild-animals, trees and anything that needs to be in commons to improve articles
  • Kasane, Maun and Ghanzi are a place of tourism where so many wild animals are,the Okavango delta, and mostly the information about the towns is not available in Wikipedia, so we are going to use the images to write more about them.
