The AWCF formed in 2005, having grown out of the Lowveld Wild Dog Project which started in 1996. We are 100% field-based and with over 2 decades of experience, are well placed to make a genuine, substantial and long lasting contribution to the conservation of Africa’s large carnivores, as well as the prey and habitats on which they depend.
AWCF was registered as a non-profit in the US in 2005 and as a Trust in Zimbabwe in 2012. (Registered Trust Number 0000476/2012). All work is undertaken in partnership with the Zimbabwean Parks and Wildlife Management Authority and under permits from the Research Council of Zimbabwe.
