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.
THE 2018 NYIKA-VWAZA (UK) TRUST LECTURE AND SOCIAL EVENING.
NVT Event, Tuesday 23 October 2018 – note new venue!
The date of our annual event is fast approaching, so make sure it’s in your diary and you have booked your tickets. Please note that we have a new venue this year: The Union Jack Club is in Sandell Street, London SE1 8UJ, near Waterloo station.
We are delighted to have Dr Jamie McCallum, Director of Peace Parks Foundation UK, as our speaker on this occasion. PPF are renowned for their conservation and anti-poaching work, a subject at the top of NVT’s agenda. He will tell us about PPF’s work to facilitate the establishment of transfrontier conservation areas (peace parks) and the associated sustainable economic development and ecological benefits that support regional peace and stability, with particular reference to the Malawi-Zambia TFCA. He is passionate about his subject and a captivating speaker, so an event we can truly look forward to.
