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 2019 NYIKA-VWAZA (UK) TRUST LECTURE AND SOCIAL EVENING.
NVT Event, Wednesday 6 November 2019
Please save the evening of Wednesday 6 November for this year’s NVT event at the Union Jack Club, near Waterloo, London.
For the past three years, The Lilongwe Wildlife Trust has managed our conservation programme on the ground in Malawi, to which we contribute funding. Johnny Vaughan, a director of LWT, will tell us the stories behind the work of the education programme in the schools and communities in the Nyika and Vwaza areas and about the many people who help make the programme a success.
LWT is a fascinating organisation, having started as a wildlife sanctuary in 2008, then expanding into conservation, animal rescue, wildlife crime prevention, education and research. It works throughout Malawi and cross-border, employing 90 staff. LWT responds to the emerging conservation challenges by focusing on where they believe they can deliver the greatest impact.
We will tell you more in our September newsletter.
Do come. As well as hearing an inspiring talk, the event will be an opportunity for you to network with old and new friends who share an interest in Malawi.
Tickets for the evening (£16, students £8) are available from Peter Lawrance: e-mail: email@example.com. Address: 50 Brewery Road, Horsell, Woking, GU21 4NA. Alternatively, please complete the application form included with this newsletter.
