Conservation in Mola July 2022

Our human-wildlife co-existence project, in partnership with Wildlife Conservation Action (WCA) and Bumi Hills Anti-Poaching Unit (BHAPU), has been in full swing since January 2022.

BOMA Initiative  

Our mobile lion bomas are a critical tool in our efforts to mitigate human-wildlife conflict in the community. Regular assessments, maintenance and repairs were carried out on the lion bomas in the community. We replaced the material covers for most of the bomas to prevent easy access into the boma by lions and other predators. The bomas are heavily affected by the rainy season this year as the weakening of the soil due to muddy grounds causes the structures to sag. We moved the bomas that were affected by the rain to more stable and dryer ground. Moving the bomas remains beneficial in fertilising the soil in the new area. 

Conservation Clubs  

Our conservation club in Mangwara is ongoing, with a club set to open in Mayovhe in July 2022. The Mangwara club has 20 pupils, and we have recently updated the training materials and program at the clubs. The club provides regular training to learners on the importance of conservation and wildlife. Through this initiative, we are equipping learners with the knowledge and skills that they need to play their part in effectively and safely conserving wildlife and natural resources in their communities. These clubs are the critical link between education and conservation as well as bridging the knowledge gap among families and communities on co-existing with wildlife along the border of the national park.  

 We are grateful for your ongoing support and  generous donations towards our conservation efforts in Zimbabwe.
