Kasanka needs your support more than ever!

With tourism taking a massive hit this year due to the global restrictions on travel, local communities employed by the tourism industry are facing job losses. The threat to Kasanka’s wildlife has increased as local communities turn to poaching as a means of subsistence. Our resource protection programs have allowed elephant and antelope populations to recover over the years, but the current situation is going to endanger the animals and forests we tirelessly work to protect. Effectively managing Kasanka National Park and supporting the surrounding communities is an expensive venture, with one third of our operating budget derived from tourism revenue. The period of the year on which the national park relies the most is the bat season between October and December, but we already fear that this season, we will be operating at a minimum level due to postponements and cancellations.
