PARTICIPANT INFO


HELP KEEP THE ZAMBEZI VALLEY A SAFE PLACE FOR ELEPHANTS

Elephants across Africa are in danger. African savanna elephants, which grace the Zambezi Valley with their magnificence, have been reclassified from “vulnerable” to “endangered” in the IUCN's latest assessment. According to the report, the population of the African savanna elephant across the continent has decreased by at least 60% over the past 50 years.

Imagine having your only source of food for the year ahead destroyed overnight by elephants, buffalos or even a troop of baboons. Think how you might feel if your goats or cattle were killed by a lion, or a loved one injured by a crocodile or killed by an elephant.

Human Wildlife Conflict (HWC) is not an easy subject from any viewpoint it can mean loss of life and livelihoods, it rouses fear or anger, and sometimes wildlife is killed in defense or retaliation. One of Zambezi Elephant Fund’s  (ZEF’s) primary focus areas is Community Resilience: the means by which interactions with wildlife can be shifted away from conflict toward something more beneficial, where animal populations thrive, but, also, the people who live alongside them.

The transition from elephant conflict to co-existence for long term conservation benefits is ZEF’s goal.

ZEF aspires to secure a long-lasting future for elephants and their rangelands, not only with strategic, cost-effective funding for the projects that align with their ambitions, such as Human Elephant Co-Existence, but with collaborative and innovative ideas and support.

You can help ZEF achieve its goals by participating in the Saving the Elephants Run/Walk, sharing ZEF’s work in elephant conservation across your networks, or raising additional funds for the specific needs listed on this page.

Thank you! Read more about Zambezi Elephant Fund’s work here. (https://www.zambezielephantfund.org/):

  • Buys four camera traps to monitor wildlife activity on the boundary of a rural village, to assess which human-wildlife conflict mitigation methods are most appropriate based on which wildlife approaches

  • Covers one human-wildlife coexistence community workshop, where local communities are engaged and given tools to combat human-wildlife conflict in their area

  • Provides a community with two bee hives, which help deter elephants from entering a village

  • Buys a non-lethal “chilli gun” and chilli repellent, to deter elephants and other wildlife from raiding villagers’ crops

  • Provides an hour of aerial surveillance, to monitor elephant populations and illegal activity from the air

  • I would like to choose another donation amount
