Our overall mission is to change the approach of the management and utilization of natural resources to one in which the needs of human development in the region are reconciled with biodiversity conservation.
We build local capacity for long term sustainability of projects. We train young African conservationists and provide technical assistance for conservation groups and NGOs, particularly grassroots, in Africa.
ACF’s goal is to support and link African conservation initiatives, groups and NGOs, with the aim of strengthening their capacity, building partnerships and promoting effective communication and co-ordination of conservation efforts. Our success depends on the active involvement of communities whose lives and livelihoods are linked to the natural ecosystems we seek to sustainably protect.
Our work is organised around 6 specific objectives
