Zimbabwe’s second largest reserve, the Gonarezhou National Park, is to receive US$1 million annually from a brand-new fund to help sustain its operations and fight poaching. The money, which will extend for at least 15 years, will help pay for ranger patrols, equipment maintenance, and other everyday needs, the park’s partner, the Frankfurt Zoological Society, told the AFP news agency. The money itself will come from the public-private Legacy Landscapes Fund, which was set up in 2021 to provide funds to help wildlife havens in poor countries. Participants include the French and German governments, Germany’s KfW Development Bank, France’s Development Agency, the International Union for Conservation of Nature, and the World Wide Fund for Nature.
