Protecting Africa’s Intact Nature: The Most Effective Action to Increase Climate Resilience
To find ways to mitigate weather catastrophes, we first have to look after the very system that regulates climate, nature.
"What is not being managed today, will be lost tomorrow"
Learn more about African Parks' 161 Strategy to secure Africa's protected area network.
African Parks is a non-profit conservation organization that takes on direct responsibility for the rehabilitation and long-term management of protected areas in partnership with governments and local communities.
We are facing a conservation crisis in Africa. Some of the planet's most spectacular species are being lost, but we are working to protect them.
We have the largest counter-poaching force in all of Africa for any one NGO. Our 1000 rangers provide safety for both wildlife and people.
For protected areas to survive in the long-term, local people need to value them, and derive benefits from the park’s existence.
Tourism & Enterprise
Visiting the parks is critical to their survival, and tourism and other enterprises contribute to local and national economies.
Management & Infrastructure
We create infrastructure to deliver good park management benefiting both wildlife and local communities.
