The Zambezi Elephant Fund (ZEF) works collaboratively with the Zimbabwean government, NGOs and the private sector to develop, implement and manage: anti-poaching operations, field equipment and supplies for rangers and support teams, anti-poaching ranger training, conservation security planning and implementation, information systems and networking, and technology and systems for anti-poaching operations.
Our vision is that the Zambezi Valley, in its entirety, will one day be a safe environment in which elephants and other wildlife can thrive, for the benefit of Zimbabwe and global biodiversity.

Candy and balloons are not on the needs list as they are harmful for the children and the environment for the following reasons:
• Few of the children benefiting from these projects have access to toothpaste, toothbrushes, or a dentist. The candy promotes cavities.
• The balloons once they become deflated are a choking hazard for local wildlife.
Instead of taking candy or balloons, use that space for additional requested supplies, as they are priceless.
