Our Mission

Our mission is to promote human-wildlife coexistence and socio-economic development of communities living adjacent to wildlife areas. This would ultimately lead to the conservation of wildlife in these human dominated landscapes.

 

We believe that conservation success depends on the involvement of communities and citizens in every conservation effort, as well as ensuring that communities benefit from coexisting with wildlife

 

Our Approach

Although one of our ultimate goals is to conserve wildlife, we also focus on empowering communities living adjacent to wildlife areas and improving their livelihoods. We believe that seeking and developing economic empowerment opportunities will have a net effect of reducing the community’s dependence on illegal activities i.e., bush meat poaching and illegal wildlife trade.

 

Our Vision

We envisage a world where humans and wild animals thrive together in harmony

 

Meet Our Team

We are a team of Zimbabwean Conservationists working to save our wildlife and improve the lives of the people that live alongside the wildlife.
