The aims and objectives of the Wildlife Producers Association of Zambia are:

To foster the growth of the private wildlife estate and especially its national contribution to food production and security, job creation and community development, wildlife and wildlife habitat conservation, and private sector development.

This aim will be achieved via 6 specific lines of business which are:

Stimulate Interest

To stimulate the interest of non-member, especially indigenous Zambians, Zambian companies or communities to become a wildlife producer and member.

Technical Information

To provide technical information and advice to members and non-member in the private management, production, care and trade of wildlife.


To provide information and advice to members on the laws, procedures and practices of the Government, its agencies and authorities.


To represent members, and defend their interests, on private wildlife estate technical, legal and policies issues that may affect all the estate and its members.


To centralize and analyse information and statistics on the private wildlife estate and report to members and relevant government authority.

Represent the Wildlife Authority

To represent with members, partners, and clients, by delegation, the wildlife authority, as agreed with said authority.

USAID Grant to WPAZ:

It gives me great pleasure to announce that the USAID Grant to WPAZ has been approved.

This will bring a great capacity to the association and allow us to achieve more through the Employment of an Operations Manager and secretary as well permanent offices at the ZNFU.
The subcontract is valid for a year and allows us time to get organised and strive towards self-sustainability and a better future.

Please Note:

DNPW appears to be having a challenge issuing permits and we all need to keep our businesses running.
In view of this please make your WPAZ payments, DNPW proof of payment,  WPAZ renewal forms and annual game ranch return and you can pay for and collect your GTRbooks. No need to wait for DNPW to issue your permits.

This is Not a Game!
