Covid-19 Support, Kafue, Zambia
2020 - Anti Poaching Kafue, Zambia - Donation of US$ 21,250

The donation is a contributation to the operational costs of Musekese Conservation who operate in Zambia's remote Kafue National Park. The annual operating costs are approximately USD 130,000 so every penny must be watched. We are supporting Tyrone & Phil and their work in Kafue National Park.

In 2019 the operation was mainly supported with funds raised through their own companies, Jeffery & McKeith Safaris & Reel Nature, in-kind support from private individuals and companies and of course from the Lion Recovery Fund (LRF). Grants allowed them to fund the initial training of the anti-poaching officers, the building of a base in Kafue and the running of the operation.

A first payment of US$ 15,000 was done at the beginning of 2020. We were able to transfer an additional US$ 6,250 in July 2020 as part of our Covid-19 support program for Musekese Conservation. We would like to thank everyone who participated in our fundraising campaign!
