Tikki Hywood Trust

Humans once belonged to the world, but we’ve moved away and now we are destroying it. I believe that each of us can do something to make a difference – our every positive thought and action creates a ripple effect.

Tikki Hywood Trust in Zimbabwe.


The Tikki Hywood Trust was formed in 1994 on a farm in the Mazowe Valley, 40 minutes outside of Harare to breed lesser-known endangered and rare animals. They run six endangered species projects: aardwolf, Lichtenstein hartebeest, civet, serval; Southern African hedgehog and the African wild cat with plans to include the bat eared fox and caracal in the near future. Lisa Hywood-Barnard, who runs the Trust, named it in memory of one of her true heroes – her father.
