African Wildlife Conservation Fund

African Wildlife Conservation Fund

The African Wildlife Conservation Fund is a Zimbabwean-based organisation passionate about, and dedicated to, wildlife conservation in Africa. We focus on the conservation of large carnivores in the south east Zimbabwean lowveld, with a particular goal of safe-guarding endangered African wild dogs. We monitor and safeguard resident wild dog packs in two key study sites (Savé Valley Conservancy and Gonarezhou National Park) in the Greater Limpopo Transfrontier Conservation Area; a globally significant conservation region. Wild dogs are unique to Africa, but today fewer than 6 600 remain on the African continent, and the species is declining. We proactively tackle the threats to African wild dogs, and all predators, through management-based research, cross-border collaboration, hands-on conservation, policy dialogue and education and community engagement.
