International policy

Through tireless dedication, David Shepherd Wildlife Foundation (DSWF) has influenced policy, shifted attitudes and provided an unwavering voice for the conservation of endangered species for over 35 years.

Alongside funding a diverse conservation portfolio across Africa and Asia, DSWF also engages in the international policy arena, fighting for greater protectionist policies. We acknowledge the importance of national and international legislation and governments in the fight for species protection and the role they play in fighting wildlife crime.

Through global forums, including the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species (CITES) and the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD), DSWF are fighting to develop an international system which priorities the conservation of biodiversity and a world in which humans and wildlife can peacefully coexist.
