David Shepherd Wildlife Foundation (DSWF)
David Shepherd Wildlife Foundation (DSWF) is a highly effective wildlife conservation charity funding key conservation projects across Africa and Asia. Their mission is to increase awareness to people around the world about the need to protect and conserve wildlife and their habitats.
Their ground-based conservation partners are dedicated and professional organisations with a deep understanding of the landscapes in which they operate and their relationships are steeped in mutual respect and admiration, nurtured over many years. More than ever before, they face daily news of the devastation that humans inflict on wildlife and on their planet; news of vanishing species and wild spaces. David Shepherd Wildlife Foundation invests in economically and socially vulnerable communities with programmes that have a real impact, on real people, in real places.
DSWF takes a holistic approach to conservation, recognising the essential role that communities and education both play in ensuring conservation successes. They also recognise the need to tackle environmental and wildlife crime from grassroots to the world stage across all forums and platforms available for change.
By engaging in the international policy arena, fighting for greater protectionist policies and legislation, governments become equally important stakeholders in the fight for species protection, alongside those putting their lives on the line daily for the survival of species and the protection of their natural habitats.See more
