SAWCT Annual Review 2011

Our annual report will provide you with information on some of the activities undertaken, including a report on the successful year enjoyed by SACET’s 2011 scholarship recipients. We commend them on their sterling efforts. We trust you will find the read both inspiring and informative.


We take pleasure in presenting you with our 2011 Annual Review which we believe will give you an insight into the role that Southern African Wildlife Conservation Education Trust (SACET, now SAWCT) plays in helping to nurture, develop and strengthen the people who dedicate their lives and careers to conservation.

In supporting the work of the Southern African Wildlife College, SACET, which was set up by WWF-SA in 1999 as an independent capital trust fund, has with the backing of its valued donors been able to make a real difference. Alumni of the College – a number of whom were awarded SACET scholarships – are today managing some of the world’s most biologically diverse areas and collaborating with a broad array of stakeholders including government, other conservation agencies, farmers, communities, businesses. The training they received at the College is proving to be essential to achieving lasting conservation results that address economic and ecological needs in the vast rural areas of Africa.

Since opening its doors, the College has trained a total of 5,832 students from across Africa. The total number of students (short courses, certificates and diplomas) per year receiving Wildlife College training has increased from less than 100 before 2002 to 900 per year over the past few years.

Our annual report will provide you with information on some of the activities undertaken, including a report on the successful year enjoyed by SACET’s 2011 scholarship recipients. We commend them on their sterling efforts. We trust you will find the read both inspiring and informative.
