The East African Wild Life Society (EAWLS) is celebrating its 60th Anniversary this year. A high profile event is scheduled for February 2017 where we will unveil our commemorative SWARA.

Starting this month, EAWLS will be running a social media campaign highlighting our rich past and insights.

We appreciate all our partners and members for walking with us in our conservation journey.

Join the conversation using the hashtag #VoiceOfConservation.

The East African Wild Life Society (EAWLS) supported the formation and hosts three national sector-based forums.
