DSWF has been supporting key conservation projects and programmes for nearly 40 years. In that time, we’ve directly invested over £11 million in real-world solutions that fight wildlife crime and its associated illegal trade, as well as pioneering on-the-ground research, and species protection initiatives.

The insights generated through our conservation partners and our funding and support, has enabled us to lobby for meaningful change in international law. Its thrown light on human-wildlife conflict and enabled us to transition towards human-wildlife co-existence. And it’s put us on the path towards a safer future for our eight core species. That means protecting the world’s only population of desert-adapted black rhino through a well-equipped ranger team. It means providing indigenous communities with alternative, wildlife-friendly livelihoods in key habitats for chimpanzees, pangolins, and snow leopards. For livestock herders living alongside lions and farmers living alongside wild elephants, we’ve provided insurance and deterrent schemes that ensue tolerance and understanding. And for tigers and painted dogs, we’re fighting wildlife crime and stigma on their behalf.

Yet, as far as our impact goes, this is just the tip of the iceberg. Our impact reports show the real depth and breadth of the work we do.

Each report details the tangible benefits we’ve delivered across the projects and programmes we fund and support. We believe transparency is important as we pioneer real, effective change – because how we do things is just as important as the things we do.

That’s why our impact reports are accessible for all. Maybe you want to know if your values as a supporter truly marry up with ours. Perhaps as a corporate partner or sponsor, you want to know your funding is in safe hands. Whatever the reason, our impact reports are there to show our accountability and responsibility in every aspect of our conservation work and reach.
