18 year old Ian Mukabe from Kafinda basic school in Sereje district, on his first safari in Kasanka National Park. "Because wildlife is very nice I hope and trust to do the job of conservation," Ian said. "I'm interested in conservation. The value of animals is that they bring visitors from other countries. Kasanka NP has attracted people - they come to watch the animals. To local people, animals provide us with food and other things which we can use as well." Local schools and women's groups are regularly brought into Kasanka, which is unique in the country and unusual in Africa as it is privately managed and owned by a trust. People are able to see animals flourishing in land which was once free reign for poachers. Combined with anti-poaching scouts, the education programme is on the frontline of conservation methods in the park, showing local people wild animals in their natural habitat.
