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
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.
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. None of the team members are currently being paid, we are all volunteering and dedicating our time and expertise so that all the funds go into the work on the ground.
