About ZCP ... Visit our website

The Zambian Carnivore Programme is a non-profit Zambian registered trust dedicated to the conservation of large carnivore species (African wild dog, cheetah, lion, leopard, hyaena), their prey, and the ecosystems they reside in. Our study systems hold some of the greatest diversity and abundance of African wildlife in the region and span a variety of management regimes, from strictly protected to hunted, to communally owned and private lands. We are 100% field-based, working out of 3 basic research camps across the Zambia.

Our Goals

To safeguard large carnivores, their prey, and habitat in Zambia through applied research, conservation, and education.

To utilize large carnivores and their prey as flagship species for large scale habitat conservation, which in turn will benefit many other species.

To provide information and recommendations to the Zambia Wildlife Authority, and support them in all efforts to safeguard wildlife species and the ecosystems they reside in.

To increase knowledge and understanding of large carnivore and herbivore dynamics and interrelationships and contribute to the conservation of these species as a whole.

To build capacity within local Zambian organizations and government bodies for the sustainable conservation of large carnivores and herbivores, their ecological functions, and their habitats.
