Lilongwe Wildlife Trust was established in 2008 when we opened the doors to Malawi’s first sanctuary, the Lilongwe Wildlife Centre. Since then we have grown to become one of the country’s leading conservation NGOs. Our mission is to protect Malawi’s biodiversity for the benefit of its people and wildlife, and our work spans across four areas: wildlife rescue and welfare, research, conservation justice, and advocacy and education. Working in collaboration with local and international partners, we respond to urgent conservation challenges as well as drive long-term social and institutional change. The Government of Malawi has appointed us to administer a number of national wildlife management, justice, and advocacy initiatives. We are also a member of the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN), the Malawi representative for the Species Survival Network, and the Secretariat for the Malawi Parliamentary Conservation Caucus.
