The ZEN Project: Making a difference for individual animals, wildlife populations, habitats and local communities

The ZEN Project: Making a difference for individual animals, wildlife population

Imported teaser text: 

 between national parks and elephant migration paths, Panda Masuie Forest Reserve was originally a lush landscape brimming with biodiversity. After years as a hunting concession, the habitat in this reserve became fragmented, animals dispersed in search of alternative migration routes, and the forest ecosystem suffered. In 2016, the Zimbabwean government and Forestry Commission authorized the change in designation of the reserve from a hunting to a non-hunting concession on lease through our partner Wild is Life. Restoring this land to its former ecologically stable state would create immense opportunities for not only wildlife populations, but also local communities. Alongside Wild is Life, we stepped up to the challenge and launched The ZEN Project – an initiative to rescue, rehabilitate, and release elephants into Panda Masuie Forest Reserve. As a result, the project will transform the reserve into a healthy and functional part of the larger protected landscape in northwestern Zimbabwe.

Calling on Canada to take greater protections for the North Atlantic right whale

North Atlantic right whales are some of the most endangered whales on earth. Entanglements in fishing gear and collisions with ships are the top threats facing this population. Only about 411 North Atlantic right whales remain, an estimated fewer than 100 of which are breeding females. With a disturbing 17 deaths recorded in 2017 (12 in the Gulf of St. Lawrence alone), action is urgently required.
