The purpose of the organization is to urgently inform the public
of the dire situation facing the San (as they are know to scientists)
or Bushmen (as they are known to laymen) or `The Gods Must Be Crazy'
people (as loved by movie goers). What is happening is genocide!
But more importantly SAVESAN wants to
harness to the cause people to become interested and aggressively
do something about turning around the environmental destruction
of the fragile Kalahari ecosystem. What is happening is ecocide!
This is the same environment that the
San (or Bushmen) rely upon for their livelihood.
When humanity loses the Bushman we lose
their culture and their natural environment too.
