The Nature Conservancy’s vision for Africa is rooted in the people, who have not always been at the table during planning for a sustainable future. Our success depends on involving local communities.

Why? The vast majority of Africa’s lands and waters are community property — shared resources that sustain some of the world's most iconic wildlife and most vulnerable people. Moreover, most of the wildlife lives or migrates beyond park and reserve boundaries onto these communal lands and waters.

Our conservation approach everywhere we work — projects in Kenya, Tanzania, Zambia, Namibia, Gabon and the West Indian Ocean — focuses on helping local communities, governments and organizations conserve and enhance Africa's critical shared resources.
