The Nyika Vwaza (UK) Trust works to improve the conservation of both the fauna and flora od the Nyika National Park and the Vwaza March Wildlife Reserve through its programme of education in the communities surrounding the protected areas and its work in applied research to find solutions to significant threats to the ecology of these areas.
The Trust provides funding for these activities largely through the generosity of its supporters.
Jonathan works in the Herbarium at the Royal Botanic Gardens Kew, London, where he edits Flora Zambesiaca, the regional flora for south-central Africa (including Malawi), and acts as the main focal point at Kew for that region. He also led Kew's recent Mozambique–Malawi montane biodiversity project, in which the Mulanje Mountain Conservation Trust was one of the main partners, and is involved in assisting conservation initiatives in the region, particularly in Mozambique, Zambia and Malawi. He is Editor of our website Bibliography and our Databases of the Flora and Fauna of the Nyika National Park and Vwaza Marsh Wildlife Reserve. Jonathan is also one of our Patronus Naturae.
