Welcome to the Project African Wilderness Website

After ten years of following her dream to protect and restore the Mwabvi Wildlife Reserve in Southern Malawi, Gaynor Asquith, PAW's founder, mentor and chief benefactor, sadly passed away in November 2011. Following her untimely death the trustees have done all they can to keep the dream alive, but sadly have been unable to achieve their aim. It is with great regret that Project African Wilderness has therefore had to close.

The trustees of PAW would like to offer their grateful thanks to everyone who has supported PAW with their time and their money over the last ten years, and in particular over the last very difficult months since Gaynor's passing. Great things have been achieved at the reserve and we still have hopes that this work will not be wasted.However PAW cannot now continue to accept further donations.
