Conservation through education
Zambia is rich in natural assets including wilderness areas, wildlife, and iconic rivers such as the Zambezi, Luangwa and Kafue Rivers.
There are 20 national parks and combined with the surrounding game management areas, 30% of Zambia’s land mass is allocated for protection to some degree.
However, over 60% of the population live under the poverty line, many of whom are subsistence farmers and charcoal producers.
Zambia’s natural forests are under threat as the population and demand for space increases.
The expanding communities surrounding the national parks and key biodiversity areas put pressure on the habitat. For a more sustainable future, conservation education is key.
Elephant Charge is investing in Zambia’s future by supporting conservation.
The funds raised are distributed to around a dozen effective Zambian conservation organisations, split between “conservation education” (70%) and “field conservation” (30%) across the country.
The Elephant Charge is also increasing awareness about the importance of conservation online.
