The African Wildlife Conservation Fund (AWCF) is a small hands-on organisation directly involved with wildlife conservation in Africa. Our current focus is on the conservation of large carnivores in the Zimbabwean part of the Greater Limpopo Transfrontier Conservation Area. Our species of focus is the endangered African Wild Dog.
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. AWCF works mainly in the Save Valley Conservancy and Gonarezhou National Park in Zimbabwe.
Our four key projects are:
Lowveld Wild Dog Project
Gonarezhou Predator Project
Schools Education Project
