The East African Wild Life Society

During our extensive visit to Kenya over a two year period, our editorial and marketing team was fortunate to arrange a meeting with the East African Wild Life Society. This organization is one of the pillars of conservation and ecotourism throughout a vast and highly important sector of Africa. We considered that occasion one of the most important interview sessions in our fact finding mission on the state of Kenya's Tourism Industry. Our brief capsule is a profile of EAWLS, and we invite our readers worldwide to get involved. We will be adding a variety of pages on the society and its efforts in Kenya, Uganda and Tanzania on this web site and in the printed editions of Africa Travel Magazine.

The East African Wild Life Society, EAWLS, was formed in 1961. The Kenya and Tanzania Wildlife Societies, both started in 1956, joined together with wildlife enthusiasts from Uganda, and thus EAWLS was born. EAWLS was established as a membership organization, as reflected in its constitution, and is registered as a Non-Governmental Organization, NGO, under the NGO Act of 1990. For over forty years now, EAWLS has been at the forefront of efforts protecting endangered and threatened species and habitats in East Africa. E-mail: . Web site:
