The AFRICAN WILDLIFE FOUNDATION, . (awf), works to ensure wildlife and wildlands thrive in modern africa.

Program 1

$19.5m annual program spend • Conservation programsawf plays a significant role in conserving african wildlife, including the continent's most iconic species: elephants, rhinoceros, giraffes, great apes, lions, and other large carnivores. Much of our work addresses the intersection of wildlife conservation and human activity, often in the context of livelihoods and economic development.

Program 2

$4.1m annual program spend • Education and outreach awf believes that conservation, to be lasting and effective, must be african-led. Over the past decades, awf has sponsored hundreds of young african conservationists to study wildlife management and to acquire higher degrees in conservation-related fields. Awf staff members also do policy and advocacy work, serving as technical advisers to policymaking bodies, including the african union, and sensitizing african political leaders to the need for conservation as a means of ensuring africa's vitality and prosperity.(see.

In their words

Please show your commitment to saving Africa's wildlife today. Beloved species are being killed daily. That's why we must continue to fight for the life of every elephant and each rhino. We cannot allow the kidnapping and killing of one more mountain gorilla. We cannot stand by as more lions, cheetahs, bonobos and other precious species are killed in the wildlife trade.

Your support cannot arrive too soon... but it can arrive too late. Right now, your generous contribution will be DOUBLED by a group of AWF donors to help save twice the wildlife. Please give to protect the wildlife you love.
