Our
Approach

Jamma is supporting Resource Africa to bring a voice to these communities and tell the story of how the equilibrium of sustainable wildlife management and guardianship can be supported and maintained.



Many rural people in southern Africa share their daily life with wildlife. Unfortunately this can negatively impact on those communities, with elephants breaking through boundaries, marauding and eating vital crops, lions and leopards killing livestock and, in the worst cases, wild animals injuring or even killing people.

Respecting rights, resources and livelihoods.

At Jamma we support Resource Africa to engage these communities as co-dependents in conservation and in the benefits that can be derived from it. Sustainable, community-based wildlife management and enterprise can benefit not only the rural communities and their future generations, but also help to conserve and support Africa’s wildlife habitats and ecosystems.

An important part of our work with Resource Africa is to advocate for dialogue and connection between the perspectives of local communities with policy making processes at international, regional and national levels.

It is our experience that policy is most likely to lead to sustainable environmental management when it strengthens the rights and enhances the livelihoods and wellbeing of those immediately dependent upon it.
Cape Leopard Trust helps to ensure the long-term survival of leopard populations in Western Cape, South Africa by promoting peaceful coexistence and the protection of landscapes, empowered by scientific research, positive community partnerships, education and advocacy.

Their mission is to use research as a tool for conservation, finding solutions for human-wildlife conflict and inspiring interest in the environment through a dynamic environmental education programme.
