For International payments and donations, choose from the following funds:

GENERAL FUND

By making a donation to the Zambezi Society’s General Fund, you can help us undertake important activities that are not specifically attached to project funding e.g. advocacy against unsuitable tourism developments or illegal hunting activities, inputs into Zambezi-basin-wide planning, launching of media campaigns to highlight specific threats or issues of concern and provision of general information about the importance of the Zambezi River’s wildlife and wilderness resources.

WILDLIFE FUND

The Zambezi Society’s Wildlife Fund channels donations towards research and conservation of “flagship” endangered or vulnerable Zambezi species and their habitats, choosing solutions that are sustainable, are based on sound science and take account of human as well as biological needs.  Our current priorities include:

  • monitoring of the few-remaining endangered black rhinoceros that still reside within the Matusadona National Park in the Zambezi valley and assisting with their protection.
  • providing regular aerial and ground surveys in the Zambezi Valley to assess levels of illegal hunting (poaching) of elephant and other species and provide intelligence to improve the efficiency of anti-poaching operations
  • collecting data on the status and distribution of, and threats to the survival, of leopards and other endangered or vulnerable species, throughout the Zambezi Basin to assist with identifying priority areas for their conservation and reducing conflict between them and humans.

WILDERNESS EDUCATION FUND

The Zambezi river basin contains some of the wildest and most unspoilt landscapes in Africa, all of which teem with an incredible diversity of African plants, wild animals and birds. The Wilderness Education Fund is aimed at promoting the Zambezi’s wilderness values and at educating adults and children about conserving wilderness and protecting it for future generations. Donations go towards developing and running outreach programmes for teachers and pupils in rural schools adjacent to wild areas,  running wilderness awareness and management training courses for custodians of wild areas, producing wilderness-sensitive guidelines for tourism operators and visitors and assisting Zambezi valley communities to develop sustainable income-generating initiatives based on their wild areas.

NATIONAL PARKS SUPPORT FUND

The Zambezi Society believes that we owe it to future generations in Africa to ensure that those areas of the Zambezi river basin which have been state-classified as “Protected” continue to be conserved as a valuable part of the national heritage of their respective countries. Unfortunately governments all too often allocate grossly inadequate funds for this purpose. Donations to this fund will help us provide much-needed back-up support and equipment to assist Park custodians and their staff in carrying out research, Park planning, anti-poaching activities and other essential duties often neglected because of under-funding.
