ZWF Supports Zambian Carnivore Programme.
The Zambian Carnivore Programme is a non-profit Zambian registered trust dedicated to the conservation of large carnivore species (African wild dog, cheetah, lion, leopard, hyena), their prey, and the ecosystems they reside in.
Zambia is one of the most wildlife-rich countries in Africa, enjoying a full complement of large carnivores and their prey— and having nearly one-third of the country managed for wildlife through National Parks and Game Management Areas. Despite having some of the largest and most viable wildlife populations remaining on the continent, the absence of funds and logistical hurdles inherent in such work means few conservation, research and monitoring programs exist on carnivore species and wildlife species in general in Zambia.
It is critically important to protect these populations!
The Zambian Carnivore Programme’s work follows a three-tiered interdisciplinary approach of Conservation, Research, and Education & Capacity Building to fulfill its goal of conserving large carnivores and the ecosystems on which they depend.
One of the central areas of focus is large scale habitat preservation by making research based recommendations to the Zambian Wildlife authority. Your support can help provide the needed resources necessary to protect these magnificent carnivores.
