COMMUNITY OUTREACH PROGRAMME

EDUCATION, EMPOWERMENT AND COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT IS ESSENTIAL FOR SUSTAINABLE WILDLIFE CONSERVATION

Long-term conservation can only be achieved if communities living around Protected Areas are fully educated, fully engaged, and fully able to experience the benefits of healthy and viable ecosystems. GRI’s Community Outreach Programme supports the Department of National Parks and Wildlife to raise conservation awareness and support sustainable livelihoods in communities contiguous to Zambia’s Protected Areas.
