About Us

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.

Our History

 Ghana Wildlife Society (GWS) was founded in the early 1970s but functioned for few years and became dormant. It was not until 1991, when it was revived by the ‘Save the Seashore Birds Project – Ghana’ (SSBP-G) supported by the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds (RSPB), a project that aimed at protecting the seashore birds and their coastal wetland habitats in Ghana.

When the SSBP-G ended in June 1994, the Society was incorporated on 19th May 1995 and subsequently took over and continued the conservation activities initiated by the project.

Our Vision

We believe that nature is the life support system of a planet in which all life can thrive. To ensure the survival of all species, including our own, people and nature must coexist in greater harmony, equity, and sustainability.

To realise this vision, we run conservation programs structured around three strategic themes:

Saving Species
Conserving Sites & Habitats
Empowering People & Communities
