Given the challenges surrounding the government funding for conservation areas, the North West Parks & Tourism Board established the Pilanesberg Wildlife Trust to fund raise & support conservation projects in and around the park.
One of the focus areas is to develop projects that have the potential to generate funds for the Trust, a registered Public Benefits Organization (PBO), in order to make it more sustainable.
The Key Objectives of the PWT
- Conservation & eco-tourism in the Pilanesberg National Park.
- Conservation of the beauty & the bio-diversity of the Park.
- Promoting socio-economic upliftment in the related fields of nature conservation & tourism within the local communities residing on the periphery of the Pilanesberg National Park.
- Internal & external corporate communications.
