DNPW Dog Unit Ivory Success                             
In March, the DNPW Lower Zambezi Dog Unit had their first successful ivory recovery during an operation in the Lower Zambezi Area. During a routine road block, Lego indicated on one particular bag which was then searched by accompanying DNPW officers. A pair of ivory was discovered. The ivory recovery was a great success for the unit and hopefully the first of many. 

                 Safari Guide Training and Exams 2017

This year's Safari Guide's Exams were again exciting and successful. TEVETA accredited Bedrock Africa (Rory McDougall & Kyle Branch) led informative refresher courses prior to the exam and all exams were overseen and signed of by Bedrock and one of the new TEVETA accredited LZ, SL and Kafue examiners. 42 candidates sat 71 different exams with an overall pass rate of 53%. 

Over 2017 all exams are expected to change to the new National TEVETA exam and certification standard. The change has been a long process and has been driven by various parties including Bedrock Africa, CLZ, experienced South Luangwa, Lower Zambezi & Kafue Safari Guides and all the Safari Operators who have supported them.  

                      Cross Border Operations Meeting

This month Ian Stevenson (CLZ CEO), along with DNPW Senior Wardens, travelled to Chirundu Safari Lodge, Zimbabwe to partake in discussions with Zimbabwean National Parks Service and wildlife protection organisations along the Zambezi. The meeting was funded by CLZ (through USFWS) and AWF. The meeting was very positive and there is hope that intelligence sharing and joint operations can assist in the protection of natural resources in the area.
