The Ghana Wildlife Society (GWS) is a non-profit organization that works to protect and conserve the wildlife and natural habitats of Ghana. It was founded in 1963 and is headquartered in Accra, the capital city of Ghana.
The GWS works to promote the sustainable use of natural resources and the conservation of biodiversity in Ghana. It does this through a variety of programs and initiatives, including research and monitoring, education and outreach, and advocacy and policy development.
The GWS also works closely with government agencies and other conservation organizations to implement conservation and management strategies and to raise awareness about the importance of protecting Ghana's wildlife and natural habitats. Some of the species that the GWS focuses on include primates, birds, reptiles, and mammals.
In addition to its conservation efforts, the GWS also works to promote eco-tourism and sustainable development in Ghana, in order to support the local economy and promote the well-being of communities living in and around protected areas.
