The EWT's Vision

A healthy planet and an equitable world that values and sustains the diversity of all life.

The EWT's Mission

The Endangered Wildlife Trust is dedicated to conserving threatened species and ecosystems in southern Africa to the benefit of all people.

The Endangered Wildlife Trust (EWT) was established in 1973 and is registered as a Non-profit Organisation, registration number 015-502 NPO and PBO number 930 001 777. The EWT is 501 (c) (3) compliant, US IRS Reg. EMP98-0586801.

The EWT fills the key niche of on-the-ground conservation action. We identify the key factors threatening biodiversity and develop innovative methodologies and best practice guidelines to reduce these and promote harmonious co-existence and sustainable living for both people and wildlife.

We achieve our goals through specialist programmes and our skilled field staff are deployed throughout southern Africa.

The EWT Conservation Strategy 2008 - 2013

The EWT's conservation strategy aligns the organisation's core objectives and goals with its Mission and Vision and with the broader framework of external issues and pressures. The strategy remains dynamic, with revisions undertaken on an annual basis.

All the EWT's programmes align their projects to the strategy's six Strategic Imperatives.
