Akashinga Rangers’ efforts have led to a significant decline in poaching, contributing to the protection of endangered species.

The Southern Africa Field Conservation Project (SAFCP) partners with the Akashinga Rangers. First and foremost, the Akashinga Rangers are an all-female Zimbabwean anti-poaching unit that has made significant strides in wildlife protection. SAFCP recognizes the importance of empowering women in conservation, and the Akashinga Rangers provide a unique and effective approach to this, demonstrating that women can excel in traditionally male-dominated roles.

The Akashinga Rangers have a deep understanding of the local community and their culture, which is crucial for building sustainable relationships between conservation efforts and the people who live in and around these protected areas. Their community-centric approach ensures that conservation benefits not only the wildlife but also the local residents, which is vital for long-term success.
