The Trust is constituted with both a Board of Trustees as well as a Management Committee. The Trustees carry the fiduciary responsibility for the Trust but they have delegated most of their other duties to the Management Committee. Management and administration of the Trust is undertaken by WWF South Africa under the supervision of the Management Committee. The Management Committee also acts as a project approval mechanism.
