LWT granted IUCN membership

IUCNWe’re thrilled to announce that Lilongwe Wildlife Trust has been granted membership of IUCN (International Union for the Conservation of Nature).  The new accolade not only reflects our commitment to conservation but also a big vote of confidence for LWT from one of the world’s leading conservation bodies.   Our application had to be submitted by current members of IUCN to the governing committee for scrutiny, who then vote on whether we are eligible for membership.

By joining IUCN, we are committed to support the IUCN Mission – “to influence, encourage and assist societies throughout the world to conserve the integrity and diversity of nature and to ensure that any use of natural resources is equitable and ecologically sustainable to the IUCN Vision – a just world that values and conserves nature” – and to the implementation of the IUCN Programme.
