    Default Chizarira update

    Friends of Chizarira Facebook updateWithout a well-maintained road network inside the park, it is impossible to effectively deploy law enforcement personnel, and security rapidly breaks down. When we first started working in Chizarira two years ago many of the roads were impassable and large parts of the park were inaccessible, meaning that poachers and illegal cattle grazers had a free-rein, with devastating consequences. Last year National Park Rescue's hard-working road team graded over 200km of the park's roads with our 4x4 tractor "The Beast" and a tow-grader. Now that the rainy season is over we are getting started on the rest of the road network, and soon we will be able to rapidly deploy with our ZimParks colleagues to every corner of the park, bringing safety and security to the park's wildlife, no matter where it roams.
