Education hub in Lusaka National Park

Education has always been, and will continue to be, a guiding principle in @dswfwildlife’s environmental work and they recently shared an exciting update on the development of a new education hub in Lusaka National Park.

Game Rangers International’s Wildlife Discovery Centre aims to open its doors in early 2022. Located in the heart of Zambia, it will be within easy reach to many who otherwise would not have access to the country’s natural wilderness areas.

This project was borne of a legacy left by DSWF’s founder, the great wildlife artist and conservationist David Shepherd CBE, as one of his lasting wishes to see conservation education in Zambia brought to life for the masses.

It aims to host over 250,000 children by the year 2050 and will be a place where they can be inspired to take action to protect their natural heritage and foster a deeper love, respect and understanding for the wild.

The building of the Wildlife Discovery Centre coincides with the relocation of GRI’s elephant nursery, of which DSWF is a founding and ongoing partner. This will complement and enhance the education hub by allowing people to safely and respectfully observe orphan elephants on their journey back to the wild.

It will include an information hub, exploration hall, three Discovery Huts, a gift shop, café, and picnic areas.

You can support DSWF’s conservation initiatives when you take out an insurance policy through us.
