The Zimbabwe Elephant Nursery (ZEN) was established in 2013 by Roxy Danckwerts in Harare at the Wild is Life Sanctuary. It was the evolution of Wild is Life and affords individual orphaned elephants a second chance at life.
These orphans, who have been severely traumatized deserve the opportunity to grow and thrive in the natural world once more and that is where our efforts and hearts lie.
The ZEN Project is generously supported by the International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW) which has partnered with ZEN to ensure the long-term sustainability of the project and to whom we are truly grateful.
To date, ZEN has rescued 50 orphaned elephants, 30 elephants are in the process of rehabilitation and 12 taking their last step to rewilding in Panda Masuie just near Victoria Falls.
