Endangered Wildlife Trust
The Endangered Wildlife Trust is a non-profit organization founded in
1973 by Clive Walker, James Clarke, and Neville Anderson. The urgent
need for research and conservation action of endangered species in southern
Africa was the driving force behind the Trusts creation.
species extinction, sustainable management of species and protecting
species by conserving their habitat are goals shared by the
Travelers Conservation Trust and the Endangered Wildlife Trust.
done by the Endangered Wildlife Trust make a significant contribution
to the maintenance of biodiversity. To complete its work the Endangered
Wildlife Trust organizes into Working Groups that conduct research, increase
awareness and promote conservation.
- The Wildlife Biological Resource Center (wBRC) has established
a Biological Resource Bank (BRB) of wildlife biomaterials for use
in conservation, research and management of rare and endangered wildlife
such as sperm, blood, serum, egg-cells, skin, hair, embryos, muscle,
and fat are collected, processed, banked and made available to regional
and international conservation, research and management institutions.
Biomaterials are utilized by a multidisciplinary conservation and
community, integrating wildlife management, genetics, reproduction,
animal (and human) disease, nutrition and general physiology to the
of rare and endangered wildlife species.
- The Poison Working Group promotes
the sensible and responsible use of pesticides, chemicals and poisons,
thereby preventing the unnecessary destruction
of the environment and wildlife in South Africa.
- The Raptor Conservation
Group (RCG) is committed to the conservation of natural populations
of diurnal and nocturnal raptors in southern
Africa. The RCG group initiated and supports research, conservation and education
programs that are based on sound scientific and conservation principles.
- The mission of the Carnivore Conservation Working Group is to promote
the conservation of carnivores through integrated research and develop
sound conservation strategies.
