Conservation Lower Zambezi
Conservation Lower Zambezi (CLZ) is a non-profit organization based in the Chiawa GMA just outside the Lower Zambezi National Park. The organization relies completely on kind donors and memberships in order to carry out its mandate and projects.
The organization works to protect the wildlife and environment of the Lower Zambezi National Park and its surrounding areas. The main threat in this area is poaching and primarily elephant poaching for ivory. CLZworks to protect this area through assistance provided to - and working closely with ZAWA. CLZ’s core work is its Wildlife Protection Operations, Community Support Projects, and the Environmental Education Program. In addition to these, CLZ facilitates the Lower Zambezi Safari Guides training and exams every year. Occasionally, CLZ will also facilitate research and when need arises CLZ has been known to rescue and rehabilitate wild animals, often orphaned.
This is a small, dynamic and growing organization with real challenges to its work. With the continuous help of its members and donors it hopes to continue to grow and face these challenges with effective results and positive impacts.
