The publication — Swara, the Kiswahili word for the impala, a large antelope of the Africa plains — aims to create a collaborative space for snaring information, enabling useful connections, and stimulate better public understanding and debate. Its prestigious contributors report on the complex issues and solutions in 21st century wildlife and habitat management alongside award-winning photography.

East African Wild Life Society (EAWLS) is a membership-based non governmental conservation organisation founded in 1956 through the merger of Kenyan and Tanzanian Wildlife Societies and wildlife enthusiasts in Ughanda. It prides itself on being the voice of conservation in the East African region and champions the conservation and prudent use of the environment and natural resources in East Africa.
