Sports for Conservation

This year the South Luangwa Conservation Society hosted its fourth annual 10km mini marathon and sports day, attracting over 3000 people during the day.

The aim of the mini marathon is to bring together all members of the community in Mambwe District for a day of sports events and entertainment with a conservation theme. South Luangwa and its development depends on wildlife, and protecting these resources is of paramount importance.

The event was spiced up with players from the Zambia National Soccer Team Kalililo Kakonje, Davies Phiri and technical director FAZ Honour Janza. Kalililo and Davies took part in relays and madalas football matches and also acted as referees. In his opening speech, Kalililo pledged support to wildlife conservation in Luangwa.

The event was sponsored by the Elephant Charge Zambia, Proflight, Flatdogs Camp, Personal Touch, Norman Carr Safaris, Lion Camp, Alive and Kicking and USAID and SHARE II. It was out biggest mini marathon so far and we look forward to next year.
