The Southern African Wildlife Management Association (SAWMA) is an independent, non-profit professional body, founded in 1970.
The association is representing a multi-disciplinary membership and is involved with the science and management of wildlife and other renewable natural resources. It includes the following disciplines: wildlife research, conservation science, ecology, genetics, animal science etc.
The main function of SAWMA is to promote the common interest of our membership by publishing research articles in a scientific journal, African Journal of Wildlife Research, organising an annual symposium, and publishing an electronic newsletter on a monthly basis - thereby keeping our members abreast of the latest research and development and setting a code of ethics and standards for wildlife management and wildlife research.
The association is managed by an elected executive council and currently has about 500 members, including complementary student members.
