Responsible tourism: Intensive veterinary course, Malawi

Environment

Malawi is one of the poorest countries in the world and has one of the fastest growing populations in Africa, placing natural resources under immense pressure. Wildlife crimes - such as the illegal ivory, bush-meat, pet and charcoal trades - impact both wild animal welfare as well as species conservation in Malawi, and also stand as one of the greatest threats to wildlife survival worldwide.

Our charity is dedicated to the protection of Malawi's wildlife and habitats.

The 3 pillars of our work are:

WILDLIFE RESCUE & RESEARCH: Alleviate suffering and keep wildlife in the wild wherever possible through the rescue and rehabilitation of wild animals, with associated research in turn applied to broader conservation initiatives.

ADVOCACY & ENFORCEMENT: Bring wildlife criminals to justice and deter others by putting wildlife crime on the national agenda, improving interception rates and strengthening legislation as well as its implementation.

CONSERVATION EDUCATION: Inspire people to care about and protect their natural heritage for the benefit of wildlife, local communities and future generations.

Community

We employ over 60 members of the local community under the charity, and also build capacity through universities through training programmes similar to this one.

One of our goals as mentioned above is to inspire people to protect their natural heritage for the benefit of both people and wildlife. Education on wildlife welfare and conservation, wildlife crime, human-wildlife conflict, biodiversity and deforestation is delivered by our team at our wildlife sanctuary, in city schools and also in communities around protected areas across the country. We also produce TV and radio programming and run a number of national youth events. Our small scale community conservation projects have been introduced in response to the needs of individual communities we work with and include beekeeping, green fuels, afforestation and adult literacy. These programmes not only contribute to conservation efforts but also help to promote sustainable livelihoods so that communities are living in harmony with their environment.
