What We Do

At Ghana Wildlife Society, we believe that nature is the life support system of a fully functional planet and in order to ensure the survival of all life, including our own; people and nature need to live together in greater harmony, more equitably and sustainably. To realize our vision, we are currently running conservation programmes that are structured along with four strategic themes:

Saving Species
Conserving Sites &
Empowering People & Communities

Our Projects

Our work is firmly rooted in partnerships and relies on the science that inspires positive conservation actions in collaboration with communities, civil society groups, businesses, universities and the government.
