CWF’s first initiative is to combine private sector and NGO support to reorganize and strengthen law enforcement capacity against wildlife crime, in four land categories around the periphery of Hwange National Park. These areas are governed by the park authority (ZPWMA); the authority for state forests (Forestry Commission of Zimbabwe); authorities for local communities (two Rural District Councils) and an association of private landowners. CWF also helps to resource the Police (ZRP) and the national Railway authority (NRZ) in operations against wildlife crime around Hwange.

CWF is also becoming involved in many other aspects of conservation around Hwange – for example: improved problem animal management; community tourism initiatives; conservation agriculture; improvements to domestic livestock management, environmental education in local schools; supporting wildlife research projects; implementing wildlife management plans.
