Zambezi Horse Safaris Anti-Poaching

Zambezi Horse Safaris Anti-Poaching urgently needs your help.  Zambezi Horse Safaris has assisted in anti-poaching operations in the Victoria Falls region for many years. Up till now the anti-poaching operation has been wholly funded by the safari side of the business. You may not be aware of this. but Tourism plays a vital role in conservation and as a company we are proud to be part of it.  Due to current world-wide circumstances we no longer have the support that tourism brings. 48513034_1593993121411285_r.jpegZambezi Horse Safaris provide more than horse-safaris for visitors.  The owner-manager Alison Baker is a passionate conservationist and supporter of animal welfare, who goes out of her way to rescue any animal that needs help. Alison and her team of Scouts and horses play a massive role in wildlife conservation, and have been doing so, very quietly, for years. They are an integral part of anti-poaching work around Victoria Falls, doing daily patrols in areas that other units cannot reach by road or on foot. They are constantly on the lookout for poaching activities, snares and injured animals. This often means assisting to track wounded animals and removing the snares.
While Zimbabwe has been in lockdown poaching has erupted.  Alison and her team have not missed a day of working against it. In fact, they have spent more time looking after the well-being of our wildlife.  This has been done entirely at the company’s expense but now, without the income from tourism which normally helps to fund their commitment, they are struggling to survive. 48513034_1593993200968643_r.jpegWe are asking for help so that Zambezi Horse Safaris can continue this important and demanding work, while making sure that the Scouts can be paid, and the horses are properly cared for.  We hope to raise £20,000.  Your donation will enable the team to continue vital patrols and surveillance, thereby ensuring a prompt response to poached, snared or injured wildlife. If we can raise £10,000 from your contributions, a generous supporter will match the amount. Every £ counts! Thank you for your donation.48513034_1593992572720439_r.jpegPatrols, sightings and related events for all anti-poaching units are logged and collected. Regular updates are published so you can see exactly where your donation is going.

Withdrawals: since Zimbabwe Horse Safaris are not in a supported country, I withdraw and transfer the funds by bank draft, directly to IMPI.  I pay all bank charges, so that Alison and the Scouts receive your full donation. Thank you, Philippa Baker.
