Uganda Conservation Foundation (UCF)
With the support of DSWF, UCF works closely with the Uganda Wildlife Authority (UWA) on the Waterways project across Queen Elizabeth National Park. UCF’s strategic positioning of boat stations helps UWA reduce elephant and hippo poaching, bushmeat smuggling, wildlife and ivory trafficking (on the increase across sub-Saharan Africa). Control of illegal fishing and fishing techniques is already increasing fishermen’s legal catches. Additionally, the boats support waterborne tourism and provide an invaluable rescue service to the 11 fishing villages on Lakes George and Edward.
The success of the Waterways project has provided a catalyst to the recovery of wildlife in the heavily poached 400km2 Dura sector corridor in northern Queen Elizabeth National Park. With DSWF support, in 2010 UCF has constructed Kamulikwezi, our fourth marine ranger station in QENP, and constructed our first accommodation block for UWA rangers at nearby Kahendero, facilities that will dramatically ramp up UWA anti-poaching activity.
Painted Dog Conservation
Painted Dog Conservation's mission is to protect and increase the range and numbers of painted dog (Lycaon pictus) both in Zimbabwe and elsewhere in Africa, through conservation, education and community involvement.

Consequently a multi faceted programme now employs over 50 local people, undertaking direct action policies such as the rehabilitation of injured or orphaned painted dogs and Anti Poaching Units, backed up by an extensive conservation education programme centred on its purpose built Children's Bush Camp.

WildAid’s mission is to stop the illegal wildlife trade. We work to protect what belongs to al of us – our global wildlife heritage – by stopping the demand for endangered and threatened species.
Estimated to be worth between US$10 - $20 billion a year, the illegal wildlife trade is depleting many species and threatening others with extinction. Corruption, violence and conflict often go hand-in-hand with this trade and those purchasing illegal and endangered wildlife products are stealing some of our most precious natural resources. Despite the determined efforts of enforcement agencies and conservation organisations across the world, it is clear that as long as the demand for endangered wildlife persists, so will the trade.
WildAid’s approach of “conservation through communication” seeks to build the popular and political support necessary to end the demand for endangered wildlife. With over 80 wildlife Ambassadors, WildAid’s high-impact messages now reach well over 1 billion people each week in the worlds main consuming markets, leveraging tens of millions of dollars of pro-bono support. We believe we can persuade the world that the earth is worth saving.
