What started as one man’s dream in 1973 has grown into an unconquerable force in the fight against extinction.

Half a century after it was founded, the Endangered Wildlife Trust has achieved immeasurable gains for wildlife conservation. Join us as we celebrate EWT’s 50th anniversary

To honour the EWT’s 50th anniversary and ensure we can continue our work, we are building a Fund for the Future. Donate towards the next 50 years of conservation by contributing to our goal of raising R5 million. 

Your gift will be a building block in the foundation on which we will build a stronger future.

911 Vulture Ambulance

Emergency Response for poisoned vultures

With the relentless surge in wildlife poisoning throughout the Greater Limpopo Transfrontier Conservation Area (GLTFCA) region, the Endangered Wildlife Trust (EWT) has worked tirelessly with key donors to build a custom Vulture Ambulance.

This Vulture Ambulance is a vital mobile rescue station fully equipped to treat and transport poisoned vultures and give them the best chance of survival.
