Conservation through Education
Value, Conserve and Protect
Zambian wildlife faces three main hazards
Poaching is an immediate threat, loss of habitat and encroachment are longer term but no less permanent. This situation will continue till the local population is empowered and willing to end it.
We address the immediate problems of poaching by supporting training of Field Observation and Prosecuting Officers.
For the medium and longer term we fund committed local students to higher conservation education.
When qualified they can research and develop solutions and lead their communities to adopt them.As well as working directly in the field these people serve as role models to show more youngsters how to value wildlife and protect it from poaching. Presently the bush is seen as an infinite resource. Clearly this is not the case, without active community involvement the future of wildlife in Zambia will never be secure. Education and training are key.
Our "Hearts and Mind" approach funding committed local students to conservation education and training helps to produce a permanent solution. We assist in the short term by funding officers who will work to identify and help prosecute poachers.
Time is short, extinction is forever. Please act now - a Donation of any amount will help.
