Partners & Donors
The success of the College depends on the collaboration and support of numerous conservation groups, government agencies, conservation organisations and other partners. Most importantly, the College would not exist without the financial support of our valued partners, donors and supporters.
Southern African Wildlife College gave me light in conservation and management of our resources. I learned that as a team, we achieve more, through the sharing of ideas and responsibilities. It has been my pleasure studying at SAWC and meeting new people from all around the world.
