In 2018, the Sustainable Wildlife Management (SWM) Programme partnered with the North Rupununi District Development Board (NRDDB) to support six wildlife clubs in the communities of Fair View, Surama, Wowetta, Rewa, Kwaimatta and Yupukari. Wildlife clubs are groups for youths who have an interest in their environment. They provide an opportunity for kids to gain first-hand experience in natural resource management. The first wildlife club in NRDDB was formed in 1998.

The SWM Programme in Guyana is encouraging coordinated community-driven initiatives that support food security and traditional livelihoods. These will contribute to maintaining healthy fish and terrestrial wildlife populations
