The EWT is saving species through five programmes dedicated to understanding the population statuses for species of concern, the threats to their survival, and what we can all do to reduce these threats and save our most endangered wildlife species.

The EWT, in partnership with the International Crane Foundation (ICF), is saving the four threatened crane species of Africa as ambassadors for the conservation of catchments containing wetland and grassland ecosystems that provide us with essential goods and services. Their iconic and charismatic nature appeals to the public and creates a doorway for collaborative conservation.  READ MORE

Our purpose is to ensure that wild raptor populations forever soar the African skies and across its landscapes. We are committed to saving southern Africa’s threatened birds of prey and the spaces they inhabit. Through our applied research and conservation of birds of prey, we preserve the irreplaceable ecosystem services they provide and safeguard their habitats, which support the integrity and lives of other wildlife and people.  READ MORE

Carnivores are one of the most charismatic yet threatened orders and require innovative strategies to ensure their survival. We implement large-scale, collaborative, projects to increase the range, numbers, and status of Africa’s threatened carnivores. We achieve this by creating, maintaining, and expanding safe space for carnivores, reducing threats to their survival, ensuring positive changes in people’s attitudes towards carnivores, and supporting legislation to protect them.  READ MORE

We urgently need to reduce the imminent and real risk of extinction in African vultures through effective intervention and focus on the most significant threat facing these birds, which is wildlife poisoning.  READ MORE 

The purpose of the Wildlife in Trade Programme is to reduce trade-related threats that impact on the survival of wild animals and plants.
