Campaign Story

Some advice on how you can play a part!

* In general, avoid tourism boycotts to countries such as Zimbabwe. This does not help our communities and our precious wildlife and wild places. Instead, visit them and enjoy their incredibly rich diversity and hospitality. Your personal visits and donations will support all those committed to working so hard on the ground to ensure current and future protection of our unique wild places, ever more valuable to our fragile planet.

* Turn negative views into positives by sharing and highlighting the surviving wildlife and our diverse landscapes and people. Experience first hand unique individuals in all sectors and the hard work being done by their many credible efforts to protect and preserve our natural habitats. Share this with the rest of the world via ever more powerful social media platforms, and your own word of mouth.

* Please also support the tourism operators who host you on your visits. They have their own valuable projects and initiatives for community development and conservation education amongst people who live in and around wild areas. Without communities feeling ownership of and benefiting from their neighbouring wildlife areas, we will fail to enlist their invaluable support for wider conservation goals. They are very much our fellow wildlife and natural habitat custodians – both now and in the future.

* Zimbabwe has been well known for innovative and professional approaches to its precious wildlife. This country has strong technical expertise and reasonable infrastructure, plus much enthusiasm and goodwill by many players. But financial help is the big need; the world at large has to help pay for the costly protection of a truly global asset – Africa’s wildlife. Any size donation will be gratefully received – for a pair of patrol boots for a ranger costing US$40 – to sponsoring a much needed aerial census of all larger animals in the whole of north-west Zimbabwe, costing around US$100 000.
