You may know that the Lilongwe Wildlife Trust [LWT] was started by Angela and Myself some 12 years ago and I am still the Chairman of the Board of Trustees. This very effective, Not for Profit Trust, has become the most positive force for wildlife and environmental conservation in Malawi with far reaching success and influence.
I am thrilled to share their “hot off the press” latest impact report with you, which details their projects and achievements over the past year. Read the report here .
The current global crisis however has strained their resources and they are reaching out, so please help where you can.
Lilongwe Wildlife Trust was established in 2008 when we opened the doors to Malawi’s first sanctuary, the Lilongwe Wildlife Centre.
Since then we have grown to become one of the country’s leading conservation NGOs. We respond to urgent conservation challenges, as well as drive long-term social and institutional change - saving wildlife, campaigning for conservation justice, and inspiring people to value and protect nature in Malawi.
In these uncertain and unprecedented times, however, we are still facing tough times. Whilst funding for a number of our projects are secured, our wildlife sanctuary is under huge pressure as the COVID-19 crisis has forced us to close our guided tours and suspend our volunteer placements. This means that we're running our life-saving work with fewer people and less funding. If you would like to donate towards the food and medicine for our orphaned and injured animals, you can do so here.
