Welcome to the website of the 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 organization in Kenya to reduce human-wildlife conflict and protect some of Africa’s iconic predator species – cheetahs, lions, leopards and wild dogs. CUWCS aims to increase awareness of the importance of conservation not only around Cambridge but further afield and to campaign for meaningful change in the UK.

We’ll be holding a number of events (such as talks) throughout the year and we’d love to see you there. Check out our Facebook and Instagram pages for more information.
