“Working today, to protect tomorrow”
Conservation Lower Zambezi is a Zambian non-governmental organisation committed to the conservation and sustainable use of the local wildlife and natural resources of the Lower Zambezi for the present and future generations of Zambia. We intend to achieve this through assisting local authorities in wildlife protection, environmental education and supporting local community development.
The Lower Zambezi National Park and surrounding game management areas are home to a wide range of biodiversity including at least four threatened species according to the IUCN red list (African elephant, hippo, lion and African wild dog). Illegal poaching of three kinds: commercial ivory; commercial bushmeat; and subsistence (snaring) remains a constant threat in this area due to proximity to the capital of Zambia, Lusaka and one of the main transport links, the Great East Road.
CLZ assists the Zambia Wildlife Authority with domestic wildlife protection as well as promoting environmental education and human wildlife conflict solutions in local schools and communities. We rely entirely on donations from individuals and institutions, 100% of which are used directly for conservation activities.
