The Endangered Wildlife Trust (EWT), established in 1973, is a registered non-profit conservation organisation operating on-the-ground projects throughout Africa, with a particularly strong presence in southern Africa. We take a partnership approach and have constructive relationships with industry, government and communities, all for the conservation of our biodiversity.
The Endangered Wildlife Trust is dedicated to conserving threatened species and ecosystems in southern Africa to the benefit of all people. We fulfill our mission by:
• initiating and implementing conservation research and action programmes;
• preventing species extinctions and maintaining biodiversity and ecosystem functioning;
• supporting sustainable natural resources and management;
• communicating the principles of sustainable living and empowering people by capacity building, education and awareness programmes to the broadest possible constituency;
• taking a strong leadership and advocacy role in promoting environmental and social justice.
The six Stratetic Imperatives of the EWT’s Conservation Strategy are:
• Identify human-induced threats and the affected species in order to halt or reverse species decline.
• Ensure that the viability of threatened habitats and ecosystems is maintained.
• Develop innovative, economically viable alternatives to address harmful impacts to the benefit of people and biodiversity.
• Increase awareness and mainstream environmental considerations into the daily lives of people and decision makers.
• Explore and develop opportunities for mentorship and capacity building within the conservation sector.
• Provide a leadership role in ensuring efficient and adequate implementation, compliance and enforcement of conservation legislation.
