Developing a conservation Alliance

African ecosystems and biodiversity face immense pressure, providing vital services for life and socioeconomic development. The African Conservation Foundation (ACF) works to harmonise human needs with biodiversity conservation, safeguarding Africa’s natural heritage for present and future generations.

ACF’s bottom-up approach fosters local conservation capacity, protecting over 5 million hectares of endangered ecosystems in Africa. Collaborating with African conservationists, communities, and global partners, we forge a brighter future for wildlife, people, and the planet.
