The Wildlife Conservation Trust (WCT) is an objective body whose task it is to identify viable conservation initiatives, and match them with people or organisations who have the capacity and/ or funds to fulfill them.
All projects are undertaken with the eventual goal of repopulating animals (both captive-bred and rehabilitated) to suitable natural preserves, with a long term view of benefiting broad scale wildlife conservation objectives in South Africa, for the ultimate well being of planet earth and its inhabitants.
To make a sustainable difference to vulnerable animal species, specifically those under threat of extinction. To be a partner to those whose work is fundamental to conservation, but who are restricted by a lack of money; as well as those who have the desire and capacity to offer tangible support. To educate people about the need to conserve wildlife and the environment.
- Facilitating sustainable activities relating to conservation, rehabilitation and the protection of wildlife.
- Facilitating the care of animals in need, as well as the prevention of ill-treatment.
- Engaging in education and training programmes relating to environmental awareness.
- Facilitating projects whose focus is on educational enrichment, academic support, supplementary tuition or outreach programmes for the poor and needy.
- Facilitating training for unemployed persons with the purpose of enabling them to find work that is meaningful and sustainable.
- Facilitating the provision of school buildings or equipment for public schools and educational institutions engaged in public benefit activities.
- We believe it is every individual’s responsibility to help to protect South Africa’s wildlife for future generations.
- We believe it is imperative to support public/private relationships to ensure the success of conservation efforts.
- We believe in zero tolerance for any illegal activities relating to the trade or sale of wildlife, or parts thereof.
