We hope this new year brings a revived spirit to all our efforts to combat illegal wildlife trade and promote wildlife conservation for sustainable development. Looking back at 2018, the Global Wildlife Program (GWP) along with its partners delivered many knowledge resources and organized events to promote solutions and build a network of people committed to conservation.
GWP Annual Meeting
in October over 75
GWP partners from Africa and Asia met in Zambia to learn new strategies for promoting transboundary conservation.

from the conference
On the ground in our 19 GWP participating countries, most of the national project teams have been hired, the Global Environment Facility (GEF) funds are starting to flow, and activities are in motion with local staff and communities.
You can read more about these in the newly-released
GWP Knowledge Platform 2016 – 2018 publication
that summarizes our achievements over the last two years. We would not have been able to succeed in these milestones without the strong support and collaboration from all of our partners.
As we continue to develop and support our projects, please join us in making 2019 transformative for people, landscapes, and endangered wildlife.
Best Wishes and Happy New Year,
The GWP Team
