Following a year that’s been tougher than most for all of us, ZEF’s needs and ambitions are now as big as ever… we need to raise $500,000 this year to maintain our current levels of impact.
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.
Covers one month of running costs for an anti-poaching vehicle, including a dedicated driver, 1500km of fuel, repairs and maintenance
Covers one human-wildlife conflict community workshop, where local communities are engaged and given tools to combat human-wildlife conflict in their area
Allows a full-time, two-man snare removal team to conduct daily patrols to keep elephants safe for one month
Supports a grower stewarding one hectare of reforested land for a year, giving elephants more space to roam

BIG CHALLENGESWhere ZEF operates, in the mid-lower Zambezi Valley, we have known first-hand the calamity of elephant losses in areas where poaching has been left unchecked to accelerate (particularly in the recent period 2002 to 2015), but also the satisfaction of reversing poaching incidence, to a point where today elephant losses are held at a historic minimum. Those of us who were alerted to these elephant losses following the 2014 census (which led to the consequent introduction of ZEF in 2015), we're reminded of the complete and astonishingly rapid annihilation of the entire black rhino population of the Zambezi Valley in the ’80s and ’90s, and we will never fall into complacency. The combined efforts, innovations, technologies, and resolve of a collaboration of agencies in our landscape have efficiently reversed a dangerous poaching trend, and this success MUST BE MAINTAINED.
BIG IMPACTTogether, with your support, Zambezi Elephant Fund and our conservation partners in the field have made a meaningful impact in the valley:
BIG IDEASWe’ve spoken to you before about some of our ambitious plans, and many of these have come from a real sense of urgency around the various challenges we’ve described above. We’ve had to draw on some strong strategic thinking – and being able to see the bigger picture helps, too.But, as we know you’ll appreciate, ZEF’s entire raison d’être is elephants and their protection. It’s simple. All else comes from this singular purpose – and many of these ideas will resonate with you…
