Welcome to the website of the Cambridge Union 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 and EU.
We’ll be holding a number of events (such as talks) throughout the year and we’d love to see you there. Visit our events page for more information. And don’t forget to visit us at the CUSU Freshers’ Fair!
We held our second annual photography competition this year with great success! Go here to see the results and winning photographs.
