Wildlfe Conservation Links

  • The African Conservation Foundation is working towards the protection and conservation of Africa’s endangered wildlife and their habitats. Founded in 1999, ACF fills a unique niche by creating an Africa-wide network for information exchange and capacity building of conservation efforts in the region. ACF’s goal is to support and link African conservation initiatives, groups and NGOs, with the aim of strengthening their capacity, building partnerships and promoting effective communication and co-ordination of conservation efforts.
  • The George Adamson Wildlife Preservation Trust was formed in England in 1979 to raise funds for the work being done in the Kora National Park in northern Kenya by George Adamson and his assistant Tony Fitzjohn. Originally called the Kora Wildlife Preservation Trust, George, in 1988, asked that the name be changed to the George Adamson Wildlife Preservation Trust so that projects could be undertaken that were not confined to Kora. Since then, substantial effort has gone in to the restoration of the Mkomazi Game Reserve in Tanzania as well as advice and aid being made available to Kora, when requested, in continuation of Adamson’s dream of an Africa with wild and natural areas where animals can remain free.
  • Carnivore Research Malawi is a non-governmental, non-profit making organisation which was set up in 2007 to conserve the Large Carnivores (WILD DOG, CHEETAH, LEOPARD, LION, SERVAL, CARACAL) in Malawi.

Non-Invasive Wildlife Monitoring

  • WildTrack has developed a non-invasive Footprint Identification Technique (FIT) which can identify endangered animals at the species, individual, age-class and sex levels. Animals have unique feet, in the same way that humans have unique fingerprints. This allows us to monitor their status and work with decision-makers in environmental and conservation sciences to implement effective policies.
