The Endangered Wildlife Trust (EWT) is dedicated to conserving threatened species and ecosystems in southern Africa to the benefit of all people.

Two main objectives are in place to save South Africa’s most endangered large carnivore:

EWT’s main work is in South Africa, having started in Kruger in the 1980s, with metapopulation and range expansion work starting in 1998. In addition, EWT works in other countries to coordinate introductions, for example into the Gorongosa National Park in Mozambique.
