Zambian Carnivore Programme Logo Zambian Carnivore Programme is a 100% field-based non-profit Zambian trust dedicated to conserving large carnivore species (African wild dog, cheetah, lion, leopard, hyaena), their prey and ecosystems through Conservation Science, Conservation Action and Local Leadership. Our study systems hold some of the greatest diversity and abundance of African wildlife in the region and span a variety of management regimes, from strictly protected to hunted, to communally owned and private lands.

Zambian Carnivore Programme has used funds provided by the Elephant Charge to support the salaries of full-time field based Zambian wildlife vets able to respond and treat snared carnivores, to provide stipends and to purchase equipment and supplies for trainees in our Conservation Biologist and Women in Wildlife Conservation Training Programmes, and to support our Conservation Club work at each of our three field sites in the Luangwa Valley, and the Greater Kafue and Greater Liuwa Ecosystems.
