Mulberry Mongoose jewellery is handmade by local women in rural Zambia and contains snare wire removed from snare sets and cut free from wounded animals in Zambia’s Luangwa Valley. Poaching snares indiscriminately inflict severe injuries and death on ensnared wildlife. Removing snares and providing treatment is costly.
“Our most celebrated collection mixes snare wire with semi-precious stoes and freshwater pearls. The snare wire is collected by anti-poaching patrols, protecting the South Luangwa’s iconic wildlife and creating beauty from brutality.” (Kate, Mulberry Mongoose)
$5 from the sale of each piece of jewellery is donated to The South Luangwa Conservation Society and The Zambian Carnivore Programme Anti-Snaring efforts.
