WILDTRUST (registered as the Wildlands Conservation Trust – IT No.4329/1991/PMB) is a South African Non-Profit, Non-Government and Public Welfare Organisation, established in 2004 through the merger of two regional Trusts. It pursues the realisation of its vision of “A thriving and resilient world” through two core programmes: WILDLANDS and WILDOCEANS. • WILDLANDS focuses on conserving terrestrial biodiversity, empowering and uplifting communities through training as well as the protection of wildlife. • WILDLOCEANS focuses on marine conservation, advocating for healthy oceans, marine protected areas and the conservation of marine species. Furthermore, WILDOCEANS conducts extensive research and training for future marine experts and policy makers. From humble roots in the KwaZulu-Natal Province the Trust has expanded its footprint across Southern Africa, with projects as far afield as Mozambique and the Comoros. The WILDTRUST continues to explore innovative conservation and development pathways that underline the interconnectedness between people and planet.
