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 Trust is keen to support research into conservation, environmental or socio-economic issues that affect the Nyika National Park and the Vwaza March Wildlife Reserve. In April and October each year the Trust publishes a call for applications from postgraduate students and other suitably qualified persons at universities or other higher education institutions to carry out research into important issues. Applications may be made by suitably qualified independent researchers not attached to any institution. These may be suggested by the Trust or topics identified by others which are subject to evaluation by the Trust. The grants are intended to provide financial assistance towards a project and will not normally be expected to cover all the project costs.
