Cambridge University Wildlife Conservation Society

Founded in 2014, the Cambridge University Wildlife Conservation Society

(CUWCS) focuses on raising awareness of global and local conservation issues, and actively supporting grassroots conservation projects in East Africa. As well as holding numerous events in Cambridge, CUWCS is establishing a conservation research project in conjunction with a local community organisation in Kenya to reduce human-wildlife conflict and protect some of Africa’s iconic predator species. We aim to organise a Kenyan trip every year to give university students first hand experience of conservation practices. CUWCS seeks to increase awareness of the importance of conservation locally, nationally and internationally. We are thus thrilled to be part of the Cambridge Conservation Forum.
