Many of the challenges we face in conservation are ultimately driven by humans. Therefore, if we are to be successful in the long-term conservation of wildlife and natural resources we have to work with people so they see the benefits of conservation.

Conservation Education

Victoria Falls Wildlife Trust brings local school children from Victoria Falls and the surrounding rural areas to its facilities to have a day of fun and learning in the bush. Every week the Trust collects a group of approximately 20 children from a local school. Many of the local schools have environmental clubs that organize students interested in conservation to participate. The children have the opportunity to meet wildlife ambassadors and discuss the benefits of wildlife and its importance. Click the button to Learn More:

Community Animal Health and Welfare Centre

For many rural Africans, your livelihood depends on your livestock and your crops. However, most of these people lack the capacity to be able to provide routine vaccinations and treatments to their animals. The Victoria Falls Wildlife Trust together with Veterinarians for Animal Welfare Zimbabwe (VAWZ) recently opened a centre for these community members to bring their animals to for veterinary care, vaccinations, and sterilizations.

If we are able to improve the health of the animals that people are living with, then we can often improve the health of the individuals in the community and often the health of wildlife that may be interfacing with the domestic animals. Click the button to learn more:
