No. 9 The Wilderness Wildlife Trust

Making a difference to Africa, its wildlife and its people

Why do we believe?

  • Over the last 10 years the Trust has funded more than 100 different projects in 8 different African countries.
  • On average the Trust funds 25 different projects annually, many of them long-running.
  • Since 2003, the projects funded by the Trust have produced 13 Doctorates, 10 Masters theses and more than 50 peer-reviewed published papers that have contributed directly to conservation.
  • Even though the Trust allows us to make a difference beyond the geographic spread of Wilderness Safaris, for many projects supported financially by the Trust, Wilderness Safaris is able to contribute through logistics and in-kind support (e.g. equipment; manpower; fuel; vehicle servicing; access; accommodation) to ensure the enhanced viability of the work.

The Trust, as registered in 2003, is an independent entity that facilitates fundraising and the dispensing of monies to deserving conservation projects. The fact that it is independent means that it can engage with projects beyond the geographic scope of Wilderness Safaris and ensure that conservation is the driving force in reaching more people, wildlife and places than we could as a company.

The relationship between Wilderness Safaris and the Trust is symbiotic: The Trust is involved financially in the projects, supporting research, habitat management and community upliftment, while Wilderness Safaris contributes logistically in terms of human resources and equipment.
