Conservation South Luangwa’s mission is to work with community and conservation partners in the protection of the wildlife and habitats of the South Luangwa ecosystem.
CSL practices a multi-faceted approach to wildlife resource management and protection, working in collaboration with Zambia’s Department of National Parks and Wildlife to implement counter trade/trafficking measures including anti-poaching foot patrols, aerial surveillance, sniffer dog detection and tracking work, alongside direct community engagement with people living alongside the extraordinary wildlife of the South Luangwa Valley.
Funds provided by the Elephant Charge support CSL’s community work, including the annual Fun Run and Sports Day designed to promote conservation and raise awareness for wildlife protection for community members living along the boundary of the South Luangwa National Park. Each year, over 6,000 people attend the event which has become an annual highlight for the Mambwe District.
In recent years, Elephant Charge support has also contributed to CSL’s growing Human-Wildlife Conflict (HWC) work, including South Luangwa’s first dedicated HWC Rapid Response Unit founded in October 2021. Funds also contribute to CSL’s ongoing anti-snaring patrols, contributing to the removal of over 10,000 deadly wire snares since 2010.
