Our mission is to maintain healthy and viable populations of African wild dogs and other large carnivores in Zimbabwe, as well as the habitats and prey species on which they depend. We achieve this through a combination of research, conservation and education, with a focus on improving school education standards and community livelihoods around key protected areas.

The African Wildlife Conservation Fund is a registered trust in Zimbabwe (Registered Trust Number 0000476/2012) and a registered non-profit organisation in the United States (FIN: 26-0571535). The work is done with the support of the Zimbabwe Parks and Wildlife Management Authority and the Research Council of Zimbabwe.

Donate to the African Wildlife Conservation Fund

AWCF is a field-based, hands-on conservation organisation with exceptionally low overheads. All donations go directly to where they are most needed, including for wages for education officers and wild dog trackers, education resources for schools, equipment (e.g. radios, GPS units, satellite collars, motorbikes) and operational costs (fuel, vehicle maintenance). Every little helps and we’re able to make any donation go a long way, so please consider supporting us.
