Friends of the Zambezi Society may remember the volunteer  wildlife surveys that the Society successfully organised at in 2007 and 2008  in the Matusadona National Park in collaboration with the Zimbabwe Parks & Wildlife Management Authority

We are planning another such event over the Heroes Day weekend in August 2014, in order to survey for evidence of wildlife and the illicit removal of wildlife in the Matusadona National Park.

The dates are Friday 8th August to Wednesday 13 August 2013.

We are looking for 7 volunteer teams to assist in this exercise. Each team needs at least 2 to 3 people who are fit, can map read and use a GPS, are fully self contained to camp and walk in the bush for 4 days and have 4 wheel drive transport. Each team will be accompanied by an armed National Parks officer.

This is an important exercise, but also a chance to have a real wilderness experience while contributing some skills and support to the Matusadona National Park.

If you are interested, please can you communicate urgently with Frances Morris or Pete Musto as follows:-
