Research & Philosophy
Wildlife Conservation Trust
WCT supports and promotes research related to endangered species.
The WCT supports and promotes research related to endangered species. It encourages research that will benefit the conservation of species, and particularly those in captivity, with the intention to serve as gene pools for supplementing genetic heterogeneity in free-ranging species under threat.
Since its inception, The Hoedspruit Endangered Species Centre has had a history of supporting research in the fields of nutrition, breeding, and management. Researchers from various academic institutions published more than 30 scientific papers in scientific journals or as the proceedings of congresses, symposia, or workshops.
