WELCOME TO WESM - THE WILDLIFE AND ENVIRONMENTAL SOCIETY OF MALAWI (Blantyre Branch)

WESM has been dedicated to protecting Malawi’s remarkable diversity of animals and habitats for over 60 years. Strictly non-profit, we rely on donations from individuals and businesses in Malawi and from around the world to fund our work.

WESM MEETING JANUARY 2017

WESM is fortunate to have Precious Kamange and Amy Ransom as our next guest speakers.

Precious Kamange is the Project Manager for the Chikolongo Farm Project, which Imani Consultants manages on behalf of the International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW). The project is designed to reduce poaching of animals and fish in Liwonde National Park, and prevent human-wildlife conflict along the western boundary of the park.

Amy Ransom, Monitoring and Evaluation Consultant, will discuss a Needs Assessment Imani is conducting - also on behalf of IFAW - in communities around three additional parks in Malawi and Zambia to understand the human-side of human-wildlife conflict and support planning for appropriate community development projects.
