Join the Herd
Founded in 2005, our teams have grown to 200+ people who implement an ambitious, community-driven, and effective approach to conservation across multiple landscapes in Tanzania.
The organization’s regional headquarters, the Noloholo Environmental Center, was built on land donated by a local Maasai community near Tarangire National Park. It serves as a program hub and education center for African People & Wildlife and our sister organization, Tanzania People & Wildlife.
Women in Conservation Interns (3)
Through our African Women in Conservation Initiative, we offer internship opportunities at Noloholo for three young women to sharpen their knowledge and conservation skills. We are no longer accepting applications at this time. Only short-listed candidates will be contacted.
The feeling of urgency electrifies our teams. We are driven by the need to ACT NOW and to ensure that our conservation efforts make a real difference for key species like lions and elephants.

APW was co-founded in 2005 by Dr. Laly Lichtenfeld and Charles Trout with a mission to create win-win solutions for people and wildlife in Tanzania.
Our programs positively impact thirty-five communities in six critical conservation landscapes across northern Tanzania.
