All female anti poaching unit inspires

Members of an all-female anti-poaching unit spoke to guests at Entrepreneurs’ Organisation Women’s Month event recently.

One of the IAPF’s major contributions was the establishment of Akashinga (the brave ones) – one of Africa’s all-female anti-poaching unit based in the Zambezi valley. Realising women were the missing link in successful conservation initiatives and basing the model on South Africa’s Black Mamba Anti-Poaching Unit, IAPF educated and trained marginalised women from rural communities to be rangers and biodiversity managers. Through this model, IAPF has been empowering women and the local communities while replacing trophy hunting with conservation.
