Swara Magazine, first published in 1959 as Wild Life, is widely considered to be the ‘voice of conservation’ in East Africa, says Exact Editions. The publication – Swara is the Kiswahili word for the impala, a large antelope of the African plains – aims to create a collaborative space for sharing information, enabling useful connections, and to stimulate better public understanding and debate. Its contributors report on the complex issues and solutions in 21st-century wildlife and habitat management alongside impactful photography.
The Exact Editions platform organises issues into stacks to facilitate easy browsing. The advanced search function can be used by both individual and institutional readers to locate references to specific species, areas or other keywords.
Editor John Nyaga commented: “We are thrilled to have collaborated with Exact Editions to create such a smart-looking collection of digital issues that can be so easily accessed for both general interest and research purposes.”
Managing Director of Exact Editions, Daryl Rayner, remarked: “Swara Magazine has a rich history and this modern archive will appeal greatly to readers who are studying conservation, the East African region or environmentalism, whether on a personal or academic basis.”
