“Africa’s conservation leaders of the future; your work has just begun”
This was the message shared with the 46 men and women who graduated from the Southern African Wildlife College (SAWC) on 29 November 2017. During the ceremony, three graduates also received life-changing scholarships from the Southern African Wildlife College Trust.
Hailing from seven African countries, the graduates received their Higher and Advanced certificates in Wildlife Area Management from SAWC Vice Chancellor and CEO, Theresa Sowry, at the college campus in the Greater Kruger National Park. The college, founded in 1996, has been offering wildlife area management qualifications for 20 years. This year, the countries represented by the graduates included Lesotho, Malawi, Mozambique, Namibia, South Africa, Zambia and Zimbabwe.
