The Voice of Conservation in East Africa
The East African Wild Life Society is a membership-based public benefit organization that seeks to enhance the conservation and wise use of the environment and natural resources in the East African region.
SCOPE OF WORK
EAWLS publishes the world-renowned Swara magazine, whose focus is on conservation challenges and successes as well as new approaches. The magazine is keen to stimulate better public understanding and debate. EAWLS is also a co-publisher of the East African Journal of Ecology that focuses on scientific research in the East African region.
EAWLS takes a lead role in facilitating and contributing to the formulation and implementation of policies and laws in the land, natural resource conservation and management sector that lead to the safeguarding of biodiversity and ecosystems as well as enhanced socio-economic outcomes for all people in East Africa.
EAWLS has a strong community-based approach in its direct conservation programmes and initiatives. We work closely with Beach Management Units (BMUs), Community Forest Associations (CFAs), Water Resource Users Associations (WRUAs) and Community Wildlife Conservancies.
