DICT wins PAAZA award

The Dyer Island Conservation Trust (DICT) was excited to receive the PAAZA Conservation Award which was dedicated to their founder, Wilfred Chivell.

The Conservation Award is given to those individuals or organizations that have made significant contributions to the conservation of African species diversity or ecosystems.

DICT is a conservation partner of PAAZA - the Pan-African Association of Zoos and Aquaria. PAAZA’s mission is to guide and accredit all African Zoos and Aquaria to become effective and credible centres of animal welfare, conservation, education and research. Wilfred was commended for his commitment to marine conservation, in particular how business and conservation can work together and his African penguin conservation efforts.
