Q1 2022 project updates

We have had a very progressive start to Q1 of 2022 with our projects on the ground starting to gain moment after the slow down that we have all experienced with the Covid 19 pandemic and Detla variant. Below are some highlights from the activity on the ground in our conservation project in Zimbabwe 

The 19 pandemic continues to have a devastating impact on the livelihoods of poor communities and individuals who rely on tourism as a source of income to feed their families. This has a knock-on effect on wildlife as animal poaching is steadily increasing. We are seeing more wildlife shootings in our parks for meat supplies as the community is actively poaching animals in a desperate attempt to feed their families.

In the past two years:

  • Animal poaching has increased in our parks
  • An average of 20 Elephants are poached for commercial poaching a year
  • Small antelope and bushmeat are poached by the community for meat.

We built an additional anti-poaching unit  which will give the National Parks additional capacity. The unit is a fully equipped and resourced anti-poaching operation base. We also launched a Ranger Protein Supplement Program as part of our support to 80 Rangers and their families who live and co-exist alongside the wildlife in the parks. For the preservation of wildlife, we have also stopped the harvesting of animals in the parks by providing an alternative source of protein.

 

We are grateful for the ongoing support towards our projects and our foundation
