Mission Statement of the Nyika Vwaza (UK) Trust
As the leading conservation agency based in the United Kingdom that is supporting conservation work within Malawi’s Nyika National Park and the Vwaza Marsh Wildlife Reserve and their surrounding communities, our mission is to:
- Develop a body of supporters within the UK and internationally and facilitate a sense of common purpose and union between them.
- Publicise the importance of the parks as precious areas of wildlife biodiversity with endemic species of flora and fauna that are endangered.
- Encourage the public, especially Malawians, to appreciate and value the parks for the importance of their resources, their aesthetic qualities and their mental and spiritual restorative capacities.
- Promote scientific and historical research about the parks.
- Provide funds for environmental education programmes to communities in the surrounding areas.
Support Governments, especially the Governments of Malawi and Zambia, international and other institutions, in their efforts to protect and conserve the parks in perpetuity.
