Our Work

African Parks is a non-profit conservation organisation that takes on direct responsibility for the rehabilitation and long-term management of protected areas in partnership with governments and local communities.

  • Biodiversity Conservation

    Protecting biodiversity is essential to reduce the impacts of climate change, conserve species and ensure healthy ecosystem services that benefit people and wildlife. To do this, we safeguard protected areas under our management through conservation law enforcement, species restoration, monitoring and research.

  • Community Development

    To ensure protected areas provide value to communities in the long-term, local people need to derive benefits from their existence and participate in decision making structures. Through positive community engagement and supporting ecological sustainability, socio-economic development and education, we are building a strong constituency for conservation.

  • Park Revenue Generation

    Creating a conservation-led economy that generates long-term income for protected areas is vital to alleviate poverty and safeguard natural resources. Through sustainable tourism options and other conservation-compatible enterprises we help generate revenue that flows back into the management and protection of the parks.
