The Zambezi Society is a membership-based, non-profit, conservation organisation focused on the Zambezi River and its basin.
Proud winners of the 2012 Zimbabwe Achievers Conservation Award, our current programmes are as follows:-
WE SUPPORT PARKS: We provide financial, logistical and material support for Protected Areas and National Parks in the Zambezi River basin, focusing on research, monitoring and anti-poaching programmes.
WE HELP CONSERVE WILDLIFE: We are involved with a number of wildlife conservation and anti-poaching projects focused on important Zambezi species such as elephant, rhino and leopard.
WE EDUCATE ABOUT WILDERNESS: We develop information and materials designed to make people at all levels more aware of the value of wild areas and the need to conserve them. We have established the first training courses in wilderness awareness and management for custodians of Zambezi wild areas.
WE PROVIDE INFORMATION: We increase public awareness about issues affecting the Zambezi river and its basin, by disseminating information through research, publications, the media, our wesite, Social Media outlets and our newsletters.
WE LOBBY FOR SENSIBLE PLANNING: We lobby or advocate against development initiatives that are unsuitable or damaging to the biodiversity or wilderness values of the Zambezi environment; and we promote good river basin planning based on sound scientific information.
If you have enjoyed the wilderness and wildlife of the Zambezi River and are interested in safeguarding its future, please help us conserve its wild values.
