African ecosystems and biodiversity are under great pressure. African wildlife and wilderness provide essential ecosystem services that sustain life and are essential for socioeconomic development. The African Conservation Foundation conducts projects that change the approach of the management of natural resources to one in which the needs of human development are reconciled with biodiversity conservation. Protection of biodiversity means protecting Africa’s natural heritage for current and future generations. Conservation also contributes to local and regional security and to the sustainability of economic activities.
ACF supports African conservation initiatives and builds local capacity for conservation. Focusing on bottom-up approaches, ACF has helped protect more than 5 million hectares of threatened ecosystems in Africa. We are working together with African conservationists, local communities and partners around the world. Together we create a brighter future for wildlife, people and the planet.

“I am greatly encouraged by the work of the African Conservation Foundation for they are motivated by the idea that nature and our environment are an essential gift that we need to protect for future generations. After all, what would life be without a clean, healthy and sustainable environment?”.
