About Us

Our Vision is to serve as the premier resource for animal law experts in Africa.
Our Mission is to influence the human mindset and inspire behavior change towards animal protection and preservation laws.
Our AGENDA Sofa is dedicated to protect animals through the legal system and our main focus for 2018 will be these 3 areas:
  • Lobbying for Harmonization of wildlife laws in Zimbabwe.
  • Advocating for wildlife policies that promote health and sustainable animal populations.
  • Educating law students and law enforcement officers about existing animal laws.
  • Living with Animals

    As world population increases, humans need more and more resources most of which we share with animals. Its a fact that humans are the top of the chain when it comes to all living organisms so it is our sole responsibilty to make sure we make this world a habitable place for all species.

    Fortunately there are laws and regulations put in place by governments and world bodies which are blueprints to an environment where we can live with animals without conflict or taking advantage of them. At SOFA we have taken it as our job to enlighted and educate people from all walks of life of the importance of upholding these animal laws.

    The event was well attended by people from various walks of life and all ages. We had time to chat with audiences and on-lookers where we spread messages on the importance of protecting wildlife and the legal systems' role in animal legislation. Special shout out to the school kids who attended our event and helped spread the word.
