Ghana Wildlife Society

Ghana Wildlife Society

The GWS was first formed in the early 1970s but functioned for a few years and became dormant. In 1991, it was revived by the Save the Seashore Birds Project - Ghana (SSPC-G), a project that aimed at protecting sea and shore birds and their coastal wetland habitats in Ghana. When the SSBP-G ended in June 1994, the Society took over and continued the conservation activities initiated by the project.Recent Achievements
Completed the identification of IBAs and started work on producing a national inventory of them
Continued to run five community-based natural resource conservation projects.
Made good progress with the coastal wetlands management project: more wildlife clubs were established and Ramsar regulations are more widely implemented
Held a second Youth Parliament on the Environment for the 35,000 membership of the Wildlife Clubs of Ghana. Wide media publicity was generated and a formal memorandum was presented to the Ghana Parliament
Began two community conservation projects, the Mount Afadjato Community Forest Conservation Project and the Amansuri Conservation and Integrated Development Project. The latter is initiated by the local community with support from the GWS and located at an IBA.
Succeeded in obtaining government support for the effective implementation of the site action phase of the IBA project. A memorandum of understanding has been signed between the GWS and the Forestry Commission who has jurisdiction over most of the identified IBAs in Ghana.
