Zimbabwe Drives Conservation Through Golf

There is still an opportunity for golfers to play their part in conserving Zimbabwe’s wildlife by supporting the Victoria Falls Anti-Poaching Unit’s (VFAPU) annual fundraising Golf Day, to be held in Harare on September 21.

The field is filling fast but there is still space for more teams to enter, as well as for businesses or individuals to sponsor greens, tee-boxes and prizes for the event, organised and sponsored by the hospitality group, Africa Albida Tourism.

Charles Brightman, head, operations, VFAPU, said the USD24,972 raised at the Borrowdale Brooke Golf Club event in 2017 was vital to ensure that its operations against all forms of poaching in the Victoria Falls region could continue.

“Our supported operations last year produced positive results, where a total of 245 poachers were apprehended,” commented Brightman.
