Lilongwe Wildlife Trust
Lilongwe Wildlife Trust was established in 2009 when we opened the doors to Malawi’s first sanctuary, the Lilongwe Wildlife Centre. Since then we have grown to become one of the country’s leading conservation NGOs. Our mission is to save wildlife, campaign for conservation justice and inspire people to value and protect nature in Malawi. Our programmes span wildlife rescue, rehabilitation and research, environmental education, advocacy and campaigning, and projects to combat wildlife crime. Working in collaboration with local and international partners, we respond to urgent conservation challenges as well as drive long-term social and institutional change.
