The Ghana Wildlife Society (GWS) is a non-governmental, non-political and non-profit making conservation organization headquartered in Accra.


Our mission is to conserve wildlife in all its forms for improved quality of life for all people. We belong to BirdLife International, the world’s largest nature conservation partnership of 120 autonomous NGOs around the world.

Our work is firmly rooted in partnerships, and rely on science that inspires positive conservation action in collaboration with communities, civil society groups, businesses, universities and government. To support corporate organizations to reduce their ecological footprints, we work in partnership with private sector players and public institutions to fashion out business models that safeguard biodiversity.

Our current corporate engagement spans mining, oil and gas, forestry, agriculture, infrastructure development and renewable energy sectors. We rely on scientific evidence through research projects to engage decision makers and influence national policy. We raise environmental awareness and work with the youth through the Wildlife Clubs of Ghana (WCG) – a junior wing of the Society.
