Elephant Cooperation is a non-profit devoted to raising awareness of the African elephant crisis and supporting existing NGOs who embrace their cause.
Elephant Cooperation recently spent some time in Zimbabwe, and took some time to learn all about Children in the Wilderness Zimbabwe. To see their beautiful Instagram photos and report from this visit, click here.
“Today we went to the village to see the community projects from Children in the Wilderness.
We were able to visit the Ngamo school and gave pencils to some children, what an experience seeing the things that can bring these children such joy. We then met the headsman of this village and were able to talk frankly about the problems these communities face with human elephant conflict and the better interface they now have with wildlife due to the work from Children in the Wilderness. The human elephant conflict has been another big issue in the decline in elephant populations alongside poaching. “Elephant-human conflict is a result of habitat loss and fragmentation. When elephants and humans interact, there is conflict from crop raiding, injuries and deaths to humans caused by elephants, and elephants being killed by humans for reasons other than ivory and habitat degradation.” Elephant Cooperation is on a mission to end any bad situation and find new ways to grow these conflicts into something positive for humans and wildlife.”
