Wild Migration: builds the participation capacity of wildlife scientists, wildlife policy experts, NGOs and CSOs around the world to secure international wildlife conservation.

Wild Migration Projects

Wild Migration Projects is our programme to build the capacity of wildlife scientists, wildlife policy experts and non-governmental organisations in developing regions to utilise international processes for migratory and transboundary wildlife conservation.

Civil society is crucial to wildlife conservation around the world.

Wild Migration is focusing on building the capacity of wildlife scientists, wildlife policy experts and increasing the role of NGOs in CMS and Ramsar policy discussions.

West African elephant (Loxodonta africana) populations have become extremely threatened, with an estimated 90 percent of their range now destroyed.

Wild Migration is working towards securing African elephant populations in at least three West African Elephant MoU countries - where habitat loss has been halted, illegal hunting is a thing of the past and conservation activities recognize elephant culture as an important element of conservation design.
