32 year old Maggie Munshya on safari in Kasanka national park. "A national park can be used to show new generations animals that are only talked about outside the park. We [the women's group] beat drums and sing songs about conservation to other people. If you go straight to someone and say 'stop poaching' that may result in a minor war." 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.
