Zambia

ZMB

Known for its iconic waterfalls, rivers, and wildlife, today, over 40% of Zambia’s land area (or 311,773 km2 of 755,640 km2) is covered by protected and conserved areas. This includes 20 national parks, 39 game management areas, 432 forest reserves, and 59 botanical reserves.

Forests, agro-ecosystems and wetlands are the most important ecosystems to the national economy and rural livelihoods. Biodiversity conservation to date has been undertaken through the management of the existing protected areas system, and promotion of sustainable utilization of natural resources in open areas.

Mammal diversity is estimated at 224 species, with over 28 species and subspecies considered threatened, endangered or vulnerable.
