Project: Anti-poaching in the Chiawa GMA
The ZWT, together with the Anbezi/Amanzi Conservation Levy and CPD Investments Ltd, is engaged in the ongoing support of a six-man anti-poaching team, tasked with protecting parts of the Chiawa GMA. The team is led by Jealous “Chops” Nyandowo, a conservation veteran of the Lower Zambezi. The scout teams have been instrumental in reducing the number of snares in the area, and their constant presence has also greatly reduced the incidence of elephant poaching. The investment collaboration has seen funds of $25,000 per annum raised in support of the scout team.
