Project African Wilderness (PAW)

PAW is an organisation formed to protect and restore the Mwabvi Wildlife Reserve in Southern Malawi. Its aim is to work with local people and the Department of National Parks and Wildlife to create a sustainable future for the reserve and improve local community livelihoods. Our ultimate aim is to bring the Black Rhino back to Mwabvi. To do this we need to restore and protect the natural habitats, provide a secure elephant proof fence around the entire reserve perimeter and strengthen the team who protect Mwabvi and help the local people benefit from it.

PAW is not only a conservation project - money that we raise is put into the development of projects (and infrastructure) that will benefit the local people of Mwabvi and allow them to take control of their own livelihoods through businesses and education relating to eco-tourism.
