Description

Our Wildlife Research project is dedicated to ensuring and protecting the area’s biodiversity by conducting research in Zambezi National Park working with The African Lion & Environmental Research Trust (ALERT) and with Zimbabwe Parks and Wildlife Management Authority (ZPWMA) on collecting data on various species. This data is used by conservation organizations to make reserve management decisions in the interests of both the animals and local communities.

Our focal project involves tracking and data collection on spotted hyena, as well as general large predator census creation through spoor transects, physical sightings, camera trapping and predator call up surveys at certain times of the year.

Volunteers on this project also take part in elephant and giraffe research aiming to support conservation efforts locally and across the region. Working alongside our skilled research team in the Zambezi National Park, volunteers collect data to assess size, health and structure of these animals’ population and compile identifications kits.

Volunteers also assist with outreach initiatives in the local communities, playing a part in the mitigation of human-wildlife conflict.
