Throughout Africa elephant populations are being poached at alarming rates. The Zambezi Elephant Fund (ZEF) has been formed specifically to address the escalating rise of poaching in the Zambezi Valley in Zimbabwe. It all began when a group of like-minded Zimbabweans, concerned individuals, operators, NGOs and relevant government bodies joined to form the collaborative ZEF initiative.
This is an area that has already lost its rhino population to poaching and is now losing elephants every month. Serious collective action is now absolutely critical in helping to stop the killing of elephants for their ivory here.
