In 2012, after persistent efforts garnering the necessary authorization and approvals, Wild is Life introduced a dedicated branch called the Zimbabwe Elephant Nursery (ZEN).
Here Roxy and a team of dedicated professionals, conservationists, veterinarians and carers began the heart-wrenching yet rewarding work of rescuing and rehabilitating orphaned and injured elephants.
Equipped with all the necessary infrastructure, the Nursery is the only facility of its kind in Zimbabwe.
In under a decade, we have rescued 50 elephants from across Zimbabwe, of which over 30 are being successfully rehabilitated through our Nursery.
We are committed to creating a sustainable positive impact on people, places and animals, not just for the foreseeable future but for many years to come.
We are in the process of building a state-of-the-art hospital and surgical theatre for the treatment and care of the animals in our care at ZEN.
We are also expanding the protected zones to create a safe corridor for rehabilitated and wild elephants in the KAZA area.
Plus, in all areas of our work we strive for better practices, collaborations and research.
We believe that the legacy of Wild is Life allows future generations to connect, embrace and protect the natural world in Zimbabwe and that inspires conservation the world over.
