Conservation Lower Zambezi (CLZ) is a non-profit organisation committed to the protection of wildlife and the sustainable use of natural resources in the Lower Zambezi, Zambia. Established in 1994, CLZ’s mission focuses on three main pillars of support:
CLZ works closely with the local communities living adjacent to the Lower Zambezi National Park (LZNP), and the Department of National Parks and Wildlife (DNPW). DNPW the wildlife agency mandated under the Zambia Wildlife Act of 2015 to manage and conserve Zambia’s wildlife and is one of CLZ’s key partners and collaborators.
This collaboration is committed to promoting integrated and participatory approaches to wildlife resource management, in both the LZNP and the surrounding Game Management Areas (GMAs).
Conservation Lower Zambezi has used funds provided by the Elephant Charge to support their Environmental Education Programme (EEP) and critical operational costs. CLZ’s EEP has been running for 17 years and reaches approximately 3,500 school children and teachers from 65 conservation clubs in the Game Management Areas (GMAs) that surround the Lower Zambezi National Park (LZNP) annually.
Elephant Charge funding has benefitted CLZ immensely over the last 13 years, providing:
