The Botanical garden will be based at Serinane village as it is a transits road to Khutse game reserve and most of the people pass by it they will be able to get a clue of the environmental challenges like endangered tree species such as Hoodia plant and of how they can protect them. Today forest is cleared for unclear resources and mainly for development such as roads and buildings. Ngwato conservation intends to mitigate the impact of climate change by planting trees along roads in big villages to try and fight with carbon monoxide emission from cars and trees use these carbon monoxide, in these process the gas will be neutralized and oxygen will be left alone as commonly known oxygen is friendly to the Ozone layer and air in the atmosphere.
