About This Project

International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW)

Under the International Antipoaching Foundation, an all-female ranger’s unit based in Zimbabwe. Nelson has been responsible for outreach and development which resulted in the extension and growth of the program. He is an advocate for the inclusion of women in conservation through livelihoods enhancement opportunities and creation of roles for women in conservation. This led to the employment of 100 women as rangers under this project. His work has been instrumental in levelling the field of conservation and equality in Zimbabwe, and he continues to push this agenda in his role with IFAW across Africa, India, China and Australia.
