African Wildlife Foundation

For more than 40 years, the African Wildlife Foundation (AWF) has focused exclusively on the continent of Africa. During this time, AWF has played a major role in ensuring the continued existence of some of Africa's most rare and treasured species, such as the elephant, the mountain gorilla, rhinoceros and cheetah. AWF has invested training and resources in African individuals and institutions that have gone on to play critical roles in conservation. They have significantly increased the scientific understanding of Africa's extraordinary ecosystems through research. They have pioneered the use of community conservation and conservation enterprise to demonstrate that wildlife can be conserved while people's well-being is also improved. They have provided crucial assistance to national parks and reserves and promoted international cooperation to protect important sites and populations that stretch across national boundaries.
