The mission of Wild Entrust is to support the long-term viability of threatened wildlife populations and their critical habitats.

Botswana Predator Conservation is a programme of Wild Entrust, which has three aims:

  • Wildlife conservation: to promote the sustainability of threatened and endangered wildlife species and their habitats in Sub Saharan Africa through field science, innovative technology, education, applied conservation research and effective management.
  • Conflict mitigation: to support ongoing successful management programmes and to develop and apply new techniques that sustainably protect threatened wildlife, especially apex predators, in their natural habitats and ecosystems.
  • Education: to educate and build capacity among African nationals, through training and mentoring, to ensure there are skilled conservationists and wildlife custodians for the future.
