About Us

The mission of Wildlife Conservation Action is to  build the capacity of local communities to protect and coexist with wildlife, while improving community livelihoods. We aim to take a landscape level approach to conservation that takes into account the needs of people, wildlife and the environment. We achieve this through sound-scientific research, conservation action, capacity building, human-wildlife conflict mitigation, environmental education and sustainable livelihood strategies

Our Priority Action Areas

Wildlife and Habitat Conservation

Our conservation work, which is informed by our research, takes action in addressing eminent threats facing wildlife species and the entire ecosystems

Education, Training & Capacity Building

We strive to instill knowledge and a sense of appreciation for the environment, nature and wildlife among the school children, future conservation leaders and community members

Human-Wildlife Coexistence

Our human-wildlife co-existence projects are focused on reducing costs and increasing benefits. We are working with local communities in reducing and preventing incidence of conflict and increasing the benefits communities get from living alongside wildlife.

Community Development

Communities living alongside wildlife are among the poorest in society and they also have to bear the costs of living with wildlife with little to no benefit. Our community development programs are focused on improving community livelihoods

Our Projects


Shangani Canivore Research

Predator research in Zimbabwe is still predominantly carried out in national parks, however private land can potentially provide suitable habitat for their conservation therefore it is essential to increase research in these landscapes so as to come up with practical solutions to conservation problems.

Nyaminyami Human- 


Co-existence Project

In human dominated landscapes co-existence between humans and wildlife can only be achieved when loss of human life and livelihoods (crops and livestock) to wildlife is reduced. The project’s vision is to restore wildlife populations that benefit communities living in the Sebungwe landscape of north western Zimbabwe.

“If we can teach people about wildlife, they will be touched. Share my wildlife with me. Because humans want to save things that they love.” 
― Steve Irwin
