19 year old Moses Mundala, from Kafinda basic school in Sereje district, on his first safari in Kasanka National Park. "The thing I understand about National Parks is animals are found in this place and bring foreign exchange in our country. They help us bring jobs. The goodness of wildlife brings development in our country. Some people living here are killing animals. They view it as a garden they can get animals from." 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.
