SAVING THE ELEPHANTS VIRTUAL 5/10KM WALK/RUN CHALLENGE
ELEPHANTS AND WILD DOGS
The Mukuvisi March, benefiting the Zambezi Elephant Fund (ZEF) has been held in conjunction with the Saving the Elephants Run in New York for the last two years. Hundreds of Zimbabweans descended upon the beautiful woodlands to walk or run on the very same day that our fellow conservation-minded friends in New York met in Central Park! But the coronavirus has put a stop to both these events this year. So the Zambezi Elephant Fund’s biggest annual fundraiser will now go ahead virtually!
“I love the idea that the run allows a lot of like-minded people to join together for a cause they care about, and to be able to help no matter where they are in the world.” Laura Robertson, founder of STER

Will you rise to the challenge?
Zambezi Elephant Fund is inviting you, wherever you are in Zimbabwe or the world, to run or walk 5 or 10km – on the streets in your neighbourhood, in parks, around tracks, along rivers, on a treadmill! Together (but apart!) we can help keep the hope for Zimbabwe’s elephants alive.
Join the Saving the Elephants 5 & 10K Virtual Run/Walk [LT1] global challenge – with your support, the Zambezi Elephant Fund can continue to actively build a future where animals and people thrive.
The Covid-19 pandemic has seen tourism revenues plummet and conservation funding slow down, whilst wildlife crime and poaching is on the rise. We cannot stand by and watch this happen. Ensuring that one of the world’s last truly wild areas remains safeguarded and rich with biodiversity means supporting the rangers, who are the first line of defence against poachers. It means protecting habitats for the unhindered movement of wildlife and it means helping communities, so that they can grow sustainably.
Register now and play your part in tackling the devastating impact of Covid-19 on our conservation partners. Follow #STER on social media for more updates over the coming weeks or email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
THE ZAMBEZI ELEPHANT FUND AT A GLANCE
The Zambezi Elephant Fund (ZEF) works to actively protect elephants in the Zambezi Valley, Zimbabwe by putting a stop to poaching and developing and putting in place systems that ensure the long-term safety of these incredible animals and the security and growth of other wildlife in the area, together with the growth of local communities, protection of the environment and the improvement and sustainability of these efforts.
