Academic Research

We have links with a variety of academic and research organisations. Through our contacts, we have carried out research with the Centre for Social Research (CSR), University of Malawi and the Institute for Development Policy and Management (IDPM), University of Manchester and hope to work together on a formal research and monitoring programme for Mwabvi.

Through this link, we have also set up a twinning programme. If you are a student in the UK interested in an exchange with a student in Malawi, please contact us for more information.

We also have contact with other academic institutions including Manchester Metropolitan University, University of Strathclyde and Edinburgh Zoo. If you would like to be included as an institution please contact the UK Team.

Individual research projects

We now have facilities at Mwabvi for individual research projects and are keen to hear from anyone who may have research projects or ideas that will help our work. Although the larger mammals and birds have been recorded, there is still plenty of scope for further research, and the smaller wildlife, flora and insects are largely unresearched.

Our base outside the Reserve has accommodation, communications with emergency internet access and mobile reception, and easy access into the Reserve. If you are interested in pursuing research at Mwabvi please contact the Malawi team.
