Farming and Community

Fine craftsmanship begins with sourcing high-quality, raw materials. ZAMBEZI GRACE is a cofounder of the highly successful Nile Crocodile Conservation Program. The Nile Crocodile Conservation Program provides secure, fair-trade employment and skills-training to more than 400 people from the local rural community, which is otherwise impoverished. As a business, we are committed to local hiring, fair wages, and the training and development of our employees. Our farms on the Zambezi River have returned more than 10,000 crocodiles to their natural habitat and have witnessed the wild population quadruple since the 1970s. Today the species is alive and thriving (See the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species, Nile Crocodile, Crocodylus Niloticus. According to the International Union of Conservation of Nature, the Nile crocodile has transitioned from critically endangered, to endangered, to species of least concern). The upliftment of the local community
is a welcome by-product of this conservation success story.
