Where We Work:


The Zambezi River and its tributaries form the lifeline of this remarkably biodiverse transboundary landscape, which stretches across Zimbabwe into Zambia and Mozambique. Key threats include human-wildlife conflict, climate change, agricultural expansion, human settlement expansion, infrastructure development, poaching, and artisanal mining.

We’re working with local communities to safeguard this landscape’s natural resources and unlock their value for people and wildlife. To that end, we employ a holistic approach with conservation and development interventions, including:

  • Investing in park infrastructure and building wildlife law enforcement capacity
  • Kickstarting community enterprises and agriculture improvements to create wildlife-friendly livelihoods
  • Collaborating with communities on sustainable, participatory conservation solutions
  • Helping rangers and community members prevent and respond to human-wildlife conflict
