Why should I remember the EWT in my will?
It’s the kind of subject we may not like to dwell on, but none of us can avoid the need to have an up-to-date will, ensuring that our last wishes are carried out and our legacy is continued in the way that we would choose.
Should you choose to remember the EWT in your will, you are not only helping the EWT to secure the futures of dozens of Endangered species for years to come, but you could also be providing tax benefits to your loved ones.
Your bequest will help us to…
- Empower communities to live and work in harmony with nature
- Increase safe space for Cheetahs and Wild Dogs in South Africa and beyond
- Conserve grasslands and wetlands to secure our critical water sources
- Ensure our iconic raptors remain in the skies
- Raise awareness and create connections between young people and their natural environment through our schools programmes, developing the guardians of the future
… and so much more! Protecting forever, together.
Who can draw up my will?
It is important to ask expert advice from a financial planner, attorney or bank before attempting to draw up your will.

Create a lasting memory
We also invite people to remember their loved ones by planting an indigenous tree of their choice, from a list provided, in the Forever Forest at the EWT Conservation Campus in Midrand. The tree will include a plaque, commemorating the person to be remembered. By planting a tree in the Forever Forest, you’re not just creating an enduring, living memorial for your loved one, but are also giving back to the environment and future generations. The EWT will be creating a beautiful, serene space where people can gather with family and friends, to pay tribute to and remember their loved ones now passed, and find the tranquillity needed to heal. In time, the space will include walking paths and appropriate nesting logs and boxes to attract indigenous wildlife, and there will be the option of adding a bench, memory rock, or animal sculpture to your memorial. Those who opt to remember their loved ones by planting a tree in the Forever Forest will be invited to a planting ceremony, but if unable to attend, EWT staff will undertake this solemn responsibility on your behalf. For more information, contact Tammy Baker.
