African People & Wildlife (APW) works to ensure a future where humans and wild animals thrive living side by side. We partner with local communities to create effective, sustainable solutions that improve the lives of rural Africans while protecting the natural world.
Since 2005, APW has created positive, lasting change for thousands of people and wildlife in northern Tanzania. We continually strengthen our programs by measuring their impact through science-based approaches.
Living Walls constructed across five programmatic areas in Northern Tanzania
schoolchildren taught about environmental issues
women involved in sustainable enterprise development across 50 women’s groups
years of sustained increases in key wildlife populations across targeted monitoring area
Saving lions requires human solutions that we can all be a part of. In our new blog, Dr. Laly Lichtenfeld, our co-founder and executive director, explains how we can work together to save this vital species.
