Wildlife and Environmental Conservation Society of Zambia WECSZ
WCESC is the official environmental organisation in Zambia and our mission is to promote public participation in caring for Zambia. The Society was founded in 1953 and is the oldest and most established wildlife and environmental (non-governmental) organisation in the country. The Society runs amongst others, the famous Chongololo and Conservation Clubs, providing environmental awareness to school going children all over Zambia.
The Society's overall objectives are firstly, to create a strong lobbying and consultative presence that will make meaningful progress with achieving sensible and sustainable environmental policies. Equally importantly we see a major role for the Society in transferring these practices and approaches to the young – who will inherit the results of our successes - or our oversights.
As part of its work, the Society enjoys warm collaborative links with Government and other environmental organisations locally and internationally.
