Previously known as Wild Dog Conservation Malawi, Carnivore Research Malawi (CRM) aims to conserve carnivores in Malawi through applied research, conservation and education. WDCM changed to CRM in January 2015 due to the large volume of wider carnivore research and conservation activities being undertaken by the team.
CRM works in collaboration with African Parks, the Department of National Parks and Wildlife Malawi (DNPW), Lilongwe Wildlife Trust, the University of Bristol and Nottingham Trent University UK.
CRM aims to:
