Perseverance during the pandemic, the latest from southern Zimbabwe

Despite the difficulties everyone has experienced this past year, the latest newsletter from the African Wildlife Conservation Fund highlights the hard work and successes that have nevertheless been possible.


The hard-working tracking team of AWCF have reported encouraging painted wolf numbers in southern Zimbabwe, in Gonarezhou National Park (75 adults) and Savé Valley Conservancy (105 adults).  Recorded densities found here are comparable with or higher than average densities for the species. These populations represent an important stronghold for painted wolves in Zimbabwe.


AWCF has also been busy with their educational outreach programs…amid all of the uncertainty that the year has brought for schools and students, this work is more important than ever. They hosted competitions to engage students with conservation lessons, printed and distributed educational posters, and supported a project bringing fresh running water to a primary school and surrounding community.
