136 animals rescued. 83 released back into the wild. 5,500 children and 110 schools engaged in our education programmes. A 94% custodial conviction rate for wildlife crime. Six campaigns delivered on wildlife and forestry issues.

This is what we were able to achieve last year thanks to your support! On behalf of our whole team, a huge thanks to everyone who championed our work in what was an incredibly challenging period. I'm proud to say that, despite facing enormous hurdles as a result of the pandemic, we have emerged with renewed conviction to achieve our mission - to save wildlife, campaign for conservation justice and inspire people to value and protect nature in Malawi. 

I hope you enjoy reading our new Impact Report as well as our other latest news below.

The achievements in this report reflect the amazing community of partners and supporters who support us to protect Malawi's wildlife and wild places - thank you for being with us every step of the way!

Friendship and freedom for Pretzel 
Pretzel came to us last year with a severe case of rickets and permanent damage to her skeleton after being kept illegally as a pet. But there's no stopping this little baboon. Over the past few months Pretzel has grown leaps and bounds in confidence, made new friends and moved into a brand new home with her troop!

As part of our project to combat poaching in the Malawi-Zambia transboundary area we hosted a meeting in Kasungu National Park with seven Traditional Authorities to support local communities in their efforts to protect wildlife in the area. The event also featured a demonstration from Malawi's Wildlife Detection Dog Unit. Huge thanks to IFAW and GIZ for supporting this important work!
