Dr. Mwamba Sichande came to Conservation South Luangwa and Zambian Carnivore Programme in 2013. Through his hard work, passion and commitment, he is one of the few full-time wildlife veterinarians in Zambia and now serves as a role model for aspiring local students, as well as other conservation organizations.
Wings for Wildlife provides funding for the Cessna 180 aircraft which is shared between two of our conservation partners, Conservation South Luangwa and Zambian Carnivore Programme. This Cessna 180 is the only aircraft in South Luangwa Valley of Zambia used for anti-poaching and large carnivore research and is critical to conservation efforts.
Our anti-poaching efforts protect endangered wildlife in South Luangwa National Park and surrounding game management areas. Through individual and corporate contributions, we have provided scout trainings, equipment, base camp improvements, GPS units, and more. We believe that with thorough and consistent scout training and preparation, we will stop the illegal wildlife trade and stop poachers in their tracks.
A scout patrols job is physically exhaustive and dangerous work. More than 65 full-time wildlife scouts in Mfuwe, Zambia take on these honorable positions to protect African wildlife. We offer student sponsorships to Conservation South Luangwa, Zambian Carnivore Program and Zambia’s Department of of Parks and Wildlife employees whose children are achieving degrees in higher education.
Zambian Carnivore Programme’s Mimbulu soccer team provides healthy extracurricular activities for youth to expand their knowledge of conservation, raise awareness in their community, increase their football skills, and champion the protection of large carnivores.
People protect what they know, which is why we believe in shining a multi-colored spotlight on pressing conservation issues among mass audiences.
