In 2014, The Frankfurt Zoological Society (USA) committed to expanding conservation support in four African wilderness areas with globally significant elephant populations: the Serengeti ecosystem and the Selous Game Reserve in Tanzania, the North Luangwa ecosystem in Zambia, and Gonarezhou National Park in Zimbabwe.
During this 2-year commitment, and with the help of your donations, the FZS hopes to see measurable signs of improvement in security and a corresponding decrease in poaching in these key African landscapes.
New introductions are to be made which will mean there is an entirely upgraded infrastructure (operations hubs, command centres and other ranger facilities), as well as increasing the number of rangers trained and deployed,. FZS will be implementing advanced ranger training, increasing areas patrolled, instituting a ranger-based monitoring system (SMART), providing computers for expanding intelligence networks, surveys of park boundaries, increasing aerial surveillance, and expanding the ranger vehicle fleets. Simultaneously, FZS and their partners will expand community conservation efforts that provide opportunities for local communities living in these areas.

Asilia operates in some of the most spectacular wild places in Africa. Yet they are fragile, under immense pressure, where the needs of both people and wildlife are often juxtaposed.
Empowering both people and places is essential if the habitats, upon which we all depend, are to survive.
We’ve selected a number of reputable and effective local partners as the drivers of these interventions. These partners tackle the issues of education, community upliftment and wildlife conservation in meaningful ways, getting to the source of the problems rather than treating the symptoms.
