African Conservancy Actions
In Zambia alone, 37 species of animals and plants are endangered,ranging all the way from the Black Rhino, the Wild Dog and the Cheetah to the Wattle Crane, the Shoebill, and the Slender Snouted Crocodile. As a start, we have initiated a wildlife education program and an anti-poaching program. Your support will allow us to consider funding other programs, in the following categories:

cubsProtecting Existing Game

  • Supporting and participating in anti-poaching patrols and park regulation enforcement programs
  • Inciting poachers to give up their weapons and snares in exchange of a reward or a monthly allocation of meat
  • Monitoring of animals to acquire information about their health, to study their behaviors, and to insure their safety
  • Adding to the gene pool by introducing new individuals into threatened populations
  • Providing wildlife education programs to teach why and how nature should be protected
  • Providing alternative protein sources by developing scalable domestic and wildlife (e.g., ostrich and small antelope) stock ranching operations

Reintroducing Locally Extinct Species

  • Re-establishing indigenous species that have become extinct through the breeding or purchase of suitable individuals and their subsequent release into Nsumbu National Park
  • Monitoring of re-introduced animals to ensure their adaptability, health, and safety

Breeding Endangered Species

  • The African Conservancy headquarters provide a sanctuary for the breeding of endangered species. We are currently researching the suitability of the site for eiither cheetahs, wild dogs, or rhinos.
  • We are also looking at the possibility of bringing in some of the large threatened antelope species such as roan and sable, and the planting of an area with canopy trees is under consideration. Canopy trees are the pillars of forest habitats, supporting numerous species of insects, reptiles, birds, rodents, small mammals and a wide variety of plants, and their planting often leads to the natural re-establishment of locally exctinct species.
