Nsefu Wildlife Conservation Foundation
Nsefu Wildlife Conservation Foundation (NWCF) was organized in California as a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation in early 2015. A San Diego based couple opened Zikomo Safari, an Eco Hotel located in the Zambian bush, in 2014. They decided action needed to be taken to actively reduce both wildlife crime and local poverty in the game rich Nsefu Sector surrounding Zikomo Safari.
The result of Victory and David Wallace’s commitment to the people and environment of Nsefu was a collaboration that began to stop the killing of the last African wildlife in the area and to help the Nsefu people rise above poverty.
NWCF reduces wildlife crime and local poverty using direct and indirect methods. Direct enforcement in the field and indirect educational interventions creates a partnership with a common goal. Working together in tandem, these two methods create a sustainable future for both the people and the animals of the Nsefu Sector.
- Our rangers are the boots on the ground working directly to stop poachers in their tracks.
- Our Wildlife Conservation Rangers monitor the Nsefu Sector using high tech anti-poaching operations.
- Our educational initiatives indirectly decrease poaching.
- Educational initiatives in the local villages teach people the value of supporting their environment and show them alternate ways to produce income.
