WESSA (the Wildlife and Environment Society of South Africa) is a national, environmental, membership-based, non-government organisation (NGO) that works to ensure environmental sustainability for current and future South African generations. We focus on the sustainable and equitable management of our natural resource base by building society's environmental sensitivity and competence by calling to, and working with, communities and individuals to move from current to more sustainable action.

More specifically WESSA's mission is to promote public participation in caring for the Earth. This is expressed in the diverse and dynamic collaborative partnerships that WESSA creates to enable its work. Working within the vital sectors of water, biodiversity, energy and waste, WESSA is a preferred project implementer nationally, regionally and internationally. In particular, WESSA proactively strives to shape policy, ensure compliance and affect social change. It does this through responsive conservation action, innovative educational intervention and human capacity development that empowers people to make sustainable lifestyle and environmental management choices.

With a track record of over 80 years WESSA is recognised for its strong membership base, professional staff, effective project management and high standards of corporate governance. WESSA has received both international and national recognition for its contributions to conservation and education as well as recognition for the quality of its management.
