Albanu Wildlife Foundation


We are proud to introduce the Albanu Wildlife Foundation, the result of the perseverance and passion that drive our team. Faced with the ecological urgency threatening our planet, we decided to rise up and take action. Refusing to resign ourselves to the decline of African elephant populations, we took initiatives in 2019, ultimately leading to the establishment of our Foundation in 2020.


Our mission is clear: to raise awareness and take action to safeguard these majestic creatures and their environment, both facing immense challenges such as poaching, habitat loss, water scarcity, and climate change.


Through a particularly innovative approach, we utilize state-of-the-art technologies at AWF - from GPS trackers to drones - to monitor and protect elephants and rhinoceroses, both up close and from afar. Our strong partnerships with renowned entities such as Microsoft, Adobe, and SSI/Inmarsat enhance our capacity to effectively defend wildlife and flora.


These joint and consistent efforts demonstrate a deep commitment, not only to elephants and rhinoceroses but also to the entire biodiversity of Africa. They illustrate our belief that concrete actions can change the fate of these species for a better future.


Every initiative we undertake at AWF is guided by our faith in the power of community and international cooperation to address environmental challenges. It is this combination of passion, innovation, and collaboration that fuels hope for the restoration of ecosystems and the prosperity of elephants in their natural habitat, inspiring everyone to contribute to this noble cause.


We invite you to join us. Together, let’s build a future where Africa’s wildlife and flora can thrive in harmony with our world.

In the annals of conservation history, the Albanu Wildlife Foundation stands as a testament to the vision and dedication of its founder, Margaux Claret. Born out of a deep-seated passion for wildlife and a commitment to conservation, the foundation has emerged as a beacon of hope for endangered species worldwide. Let's embark on a journey through the history of this remarkable organization.

Origins of a Dream

The seeds of the Albanu Wildlife Foundation were sown in the heart of Margaux Claret during her formative years spent in South Africa. Immersed in the rich tapestry of the African wilderness, Margaux developed a profound connection with the land and its inhabitants. Her experiences living among the wildlife instilled in her a sense of responsibility to protect and preserve these magnificent creatures for future generations.
