In Zimbabwe, the country's Parks and Wildlife Authority is partnering with Germany's Frankfurt Zoological Society to increase conservation efforts at Gonarezhou National Park. The reserve is a part of the Great Limpopo Transfrontier Park. Zimbabwe's wildlife has come under increasing threat from poachers. And the current desperate economic situation is affecting the capacity of the parks authority to carry out its mandate. The collaboration with the Frankfurt Zoological Society aims to provide financial sustainability and develop additional revenue streams. Communities are also expected to benefit from the development of the park, through job creation and skills development.
