We are delighted to present to you our Annual Review for 2015/2016. This will provide you, our loyal partners in conservation, with insight into the significant work being done by the Southern African Wildlife College Trust and its sole beneficiary, the Southern African Wildlife College.

It is essential that people employed in nature conservation gain leadership skills and expertise to tackle southern Africa’s daunting conservation challenges. With this in mind, we continue the work of growing the Trust.

We acknowledge and wholeheartedly thank you for your valuable support. This has helped to increase the Trust’s reserves to over R30 million, enabling R850,000 to be distributed in support of education, training and skills development in conservation at the College in 2015. The College has made remarkable enhancements to its services and infrastructure to meet the growing challenges and training needs faced by conservation in the region. The Trust’s aim is to continue to grow its reserves to provide increasing support to the College and its beneficiaries, who would otherwise not be in a position to gain the vital skills needed for them to carry out their work.

The Trust was again able to make annual awards of three SAWCT scholarships and two bursaries to top students at the College in 2015. It also supported a number of projects that impact the quality of education and fundraising at the College.
