Description

During your stay on this volunteer project, you will contribute to our important work in community development, as well as experience the best of our amazing lion conservation project that focuses on a unique approach to the ongoing protection of highly threatened African lion.

The primary reasons for the decline in lion populations are habitat loss and prey-base depletion which creates a conflict with people that results in the killing of lions in response to lion predation on livestock. Therefore, we take a responsible development approach to lion conservation working closely with communities bringing awareness to the importance of wildlife and creating motivation for human and lion co-existence.

Officially opened in December 2012, our ALERT Education Centre is the first educational facility of its kind in Zimbabwe, catering for local school children in and around Gweru city. The Education Centre offers free lessons in conservation education that are not available anywhere else in the current education system and are provided for children in Grades 6 and 7 (11-12 years old).
