Resource protection

our mission

The protection of Kasanka National Park needs to be maintained and improved. Poaching pressure is still growing, and the cost of wages, fuel, and other inputs has more than doubled in the past 3 years with the strengthening of the Zambian economy.

There are currently 25 law enforcement scouts in the park that are divided into five-man patrolsMore scouts are needed in the field, they need to be kept mobile, equipped, motivated and housed near the park with their families. 

Until attitudes and ways of life change, law enforcement and community outreach combined will help prevent the destruction of the wildlife, and remain the keys to the projects’ success.
