The Wildlife Conservation Trust (WCT) was founded through the efforts of many dedicated people and organisations that consistently work towards the conservation of endangered and vulnerable animal species.
The WCT facilitates projects that focus on conservation, rehabilitation, research and the protection of wildlife; as well as education and training programmes relating to wildlife conservation and the environment.

If taken at a leisurely pace, this drive can fill up the better part of a day.
