ZAMBIA (eTN) – After writing an article about the Blue Lagoon National Park, I was recently sent an article by the Blue Lagoon Trust. Blue Lagoon and Lochinvar National Parks are suffering from the same fate of lack of decision-making by the Zambia Wildlife Authority (ZAWA). Both parks need private investors to bring them back to life. There are serious issues in both parks – poaching, invasive plants, lack of natural flooding by the Kafue River because of the Itezhi-Tezhi Dam. Now that ZAWA is being reorganized we can only hope that something will be done for this Ramsar Site which has tremendous possibilities for tourism and which Zambia has agreed to protect. In any case, the information received about the Blue Lagoon Trust is worth sharing. Read detail story at eTN United States web portal to click this link.
