Many parks in Africa are poorly managed and in the process of irreversible ecological decline, with major threats coming from poaching and population growth.
African Parks manages and restores national parks in Africa, in partnership with governments and local communities. By combining world-class conservation practices with business expertise. African Parks aims to make these wildlife parks socially and economically viable, particularly for the benefit of local communities. This will contribute to their survival in the face of competing forms of land use.
African Parks currently has ten parks under management in seven countries – Central African Republic, Chad, Congo, Democratic Republic of Congo, Malawi, Rwanda and Zambia - with a combined area in excess of 6.1 million hectares.Read more about African Parks
