Southern African Wildlife College

Job Advertisement: Assessors and Moderators (Contractual basis)


The Southern African Wildlife College (SAWC) was conceptualized in 1993 and established in 1996 by the World Wide Fund for Nature, South Africa (WWF South Africa) with national and provincial government departments, other conservation agencies and the Southern African Development Community (SADC). Through conservation education, training and skills development, the Southern African Wildlife College seeks to give protected area managers the motivation and skills they need to become partners in saving our continent's natural heritage. All training comprises theory as well as practical skills and has been developed in close collaboration with conservation agencies and, where relevant, community participation. By providing the high standards of professional and technical training that allows natural resource managers to manage their areas within the stated conservation objectives and in cooperation with local communities, the College and its donors are helping to ensure that our natural resources are managed in an equitable and sustainable manner. In so doing, they also impact the role that conservation is playing in job creation and poverty alleviation in and around our wildlife reserves.
