Wire tapper
Issue 5 (May 2009) Alison Cockerell, manager with Shenton Safaris (www.shentonsafaris.com), has come up with a bright idea to raise funds for conservation.
The South Luangwa Conservation Society (SLCS) conducts regular patrols to remove wire snares set by poachers around the park. These snares were once simply kept under lock and key. Alison, however, is now working with villagers from Mfuwe to design animal sculptures from the recovered wire. The sculptures are attached to handmade elephant-dung cards, which other villagers make using a combination of elephant dung and shredded recycled paper donated by the local safari lodges. The cards are sold in Mfuwe, Lusaka and Livingstone, with all profits going directly to SLCS.
