Conservation through Education
The charity is based on a simple concept to have far reaching results:
The present generation is fighting the daily battle to keep wildlife alive, the next generation will ensure its long-term survival.
To ensure this happens we award young people bursaries/scholarships to become conservationists. This creates an ideal result: jobs are created, young people get a unique, life changing chance to excel. Zambia's natural beauty and wildlife are given security to survive.
Zambian wildlife faces three main hazards
Poaching is an immediate threat, loss of habitat and encroachment are longer term but no less permanent. This situation will continue till the local population is empowered and willing to end it.
When qualified our students research and develop solutions and lead their communities to adopt them. As well as working directly in the field they serve as role models to show more youngsters how to value wildlife and protect it from poaching. Presently the bush is seen as an infinite resource. Clearly this is not the case, without active community involvement the future of wildlife in Zambia will never be secure. Education and training are the key.
Time is short, extinction is forever. Please act now - a Donation of any amount will help.
